Join faith leaders from a broad array of religious beliefs and faith traditions in prayer and to call on Congress to pass a Build Back Better plan to advance racial equity, climate action, immigrant’s rights, and an economy that reduces child poverty and works for all.

Together, we can Build Back Better for our families, communities, and future!

    What’s at stake?

    As Congress continues negotiations on recovery legislation, people of faith urge swift passage on a bold and comprehensive bill that invests in families, communities, and our futures. We have a once in a generation opportunity to prioritize people of color, working families, and lift our children out of poverty.

    Our collective moral voice is clear: Now is the time to pass a robust and equitable package.

    What you can expect

    Join us in-person on the southwest lawn of the U.S. Capitol building (area 12) or online wherever you are.
