Over the course of ten days, seventeen fissures have opened in the Puna district on big island of Hawai'i, spraying molten rock up to 250 feet in the air and disgorging slow-moving lava flows, some within residential neighborhoods. Three UCC congregations are located close to the affected area. This week, over forty religious leaders came together in nearby Hilo to coordinate their response. Prayer services and a chaplaincy rotation are coming together as the eruption continues.
From Rev. Pamela Shepherd of Taos UCC:
Hello, Poor People’s Campaign Supporter! Here's an update about Monday's planned Taos Event from our friend, Jai Cross. I hope you'll join me Monday on Taos Plaza at 11:30--1:00 to lift our voices against racism and economic injustice!

Today, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will launch a season of nonviolent moral fusion direct action in Washington, DC and across the country, and we need you to join us. In communities across America—Black, white, brown and Native—we have built a Poor People’s Campaign to become what Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called “a new and unsettling force in our complacent national life.”
The Poor Peoples Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival is uniting tens of thousands of people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and ecological devastation. Each week of the 40 days of action will have an issue focus.
Right now Congress is debating the Farm Bill.

The version of the Farm Bill being considered in the House of Representatives right now proposes damaging changes to SNAP.
