On the weekend of the Women’s March on Washington (Jan. 21, 2017), dozens of Starr King community members joined marches in cities across the nation, including Washington DC, Oakland, San Francisco, Madison, Chicago, Los Angeles, Montpelier, Eugene, and Portland.
In the heart of DC, Starr King graduate and Senior Minister of All Souls Church, Rev. Rob Hardies helped provide a safe space for grassroots organizers to connect and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges we face. Among those making the trip to All Souls were Starr King President Rosemary Bray McNatt, former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, and MSNBC host/Presidential Chair at Wake Forest University Melissa Harris-Perry.

In the meantime, we will continue doing what we do best: educating people for revolutionary religious leadership in society.
