National Trans Visibility March Hospitality

National Trans Visibility March, September 28

Members of the transgender, gender non-conforming and non-binary communities will take a major stand against hate and discrimination when they rally here in Washington for the first ever National Trans Visibility March (NTVM) on Saturday, September 28.  Many UCC members and friends from around the country will be participating in the March.  First Church will serve as a hospitality location, providing coffee and bagels, as well as snack packs for marchers to take with them.  We will also hold a brief prayer service before stepping off to join the March.

What you can do to help:

  • Join the March!  The March will begin with a rally at 10:00 AM at Freedom Plaza (Pennsylvania Avenue and 13th Street, N.W.). 
  • Join the prayer service before the March.  We will gather at First Church at 9:30 AM and then walk down to the Plaza.
  • Help prepare snack packs.  A group will meet after the service on Sunday, September 22, in the Community Hall to assemble snack packs.
  • Volunteer for a hospitality shift to be present in the building and help with coffee, etc.  We are planning to keep the building open from 8:00 – 10:30 am.  Please contact priscilla.waters3@gmail.com by email or during coffee hour to sign-up for hospitality shifts.
