Interfaith Service Honoring Dr. King’s Commitment to Worker Justice

Location: Shiloh Baptist Church, 1500 Ninth Street, NW
Faith Advocates for Jobs will sponsor a national interfaith service to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and to rededicate ourselves to the struggle for worker justice, which he championed up to his death.
At the service we are focusing on Dr. King’s commitment on behalf of working people and the need for those of us who follow to continue and build on that commitment. The celebrated 100 person choir of Shiloh Baptist will sing.
Rev. Dr. James Forbes, senior pastor emeritus of Riverside Church in New York City, will deliver the sermon. He will be joined on the pulpit by unemployed workers, Rev. Paul Sherry, former president of the United Church of Christ and national coordinator of Faith Advocates for Jobs, Michael Livingston of the National Council of Churches and Dr. Wallace Smith, pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church.
