RISC Upcoming Event
RISC Upcoming Event - Richmonders Involved to Strengthen Communities
Nehemiah Action Assembly - Monday, April 30 at St. Paul's Baptist Church, 4247 Creighton Road, 7:00 - 8:30pm. The Action is the culminating event of the year for RISC congregations, and is the largest interfaith public gathering in Central Virginia! Over 1,200 justice-seekers from dozens of congregations transcend racial, socioeconomic, and religious differences to take action for justice.
This year RISC is addressing elementary school reading, childhood trauma, and job training. We hear the stories of those affected by community problems and secure specific commitments from our local decision-makers to address the root causes of injustice.
