MLK Sunday at Riverside

Join us on Sunday, January 19 at 11:00 am ET in the Nave and online for our MLK Sunday worship celebration with Rev. Dr. James Forbes, preaching.

We Cried Power

We Cried Power tells the story of a bold new social movement to end poverty in the United States, inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1968 Poor People’s Campaign. On MLK day weekend, you can watch a sneak preview of this intimate account of a “season of resistance,” told through the eyes of the workers, mothers, veterans, preachers, and students who are the voices and founding members of this new “fusion” movement.
