Nehemiah Action Assembly
March 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
All MPPC members are invited and encouraged to participate in the Charleston Area Justice Ministry’s (CAJM’s) annual Nehemiah Action Assembly which will be held on Monday, March 22nd at 7 p.m. via Zoom.
As a newly covenanted CAJM congregation MPPC joins 37 other faith-based congregations and community organizations who have come together to speak with one powerful voice for justice for the wider Charleston community.
Each fall, CAJM holds house meetings around the Charleston area where participants share community problems they have identified. This is followed by the CAJM Community Problems Assembly where hundreds of community members vote on a single problem to address for the new year. During the winter and early spring CAJM leaders engage in a comprehensive research process with face-to-face meetings with state and public officials and professionals in related fields to better understand the problem and to uncover best practice solutions. In the spring thousands of Charleston area residents gather for CAJM’s Nehemiah Action Assembly to meet with public officials and to secure public commitments from the officials to implement the solutions (drawn from Nehemiah 5:1-13). This year’s assembly will be focused on healthcare and affordable housing.
If you would like to register for the Nehemiah Action or get more information about how you can be involved with CAJM, please contact Andy White Boggan, Coleman Legerton or Sue Verner. (Photo taken pre-COVID).
