Racial Reconciliation in Sacramento: Multi-Church Meeting
We’re Better Together
Over 2000 people from more than 30 churches will meet Sunday night, January 15, at Sacramento’s 28th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Gathering and Celebration, to celebrate the progress we have already made and to be challenged to work toward greater racial reconciliation and harmony in Sacramento. This event will take place at Capital Christian Center, and will also be live streamed at www.mlksacramento.com.
