WASHINGTON, DC – On Thursday, February 6 at 1pm, Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and faith leaders from around the country will gather on the Capitol Hill East Lawn for the first national CBC Day of Prayer to End Poverty and Income Inequality. CBC Members will also host similar events in their districts with members of their local communities.

WHO:

Chairwoman Marcia L. Fudge, Congressional Black Caucus
Chair Emeritus, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Congressional Black Caucus
Mayor Vincent Gray, Washington, DC
Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, Chaplain, U.S. House of Representatives
Bishop Martin Holley, Auxiliary Bishop, Archdiocese of Washington

The National Day of Prayer to End Poverty and Income Inequality will be held Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 1 p.m., at the Capitol Hill East Lawn/House Triangle.

Since 1953, leaders from all religions backgrounds, sectors of society, and communities around the world have gathered in Washington, DC for the National Prayer Breakfast to unite in faith and to build new relationships that will benefit goodwill for all. This year, when faith leaders gather in our nation’s Capital, Members of the Congressional Black Caucus will also host the first National Day of Prayer to End Poverty and Income Inequality in our communities.  As millions of American families continue to live below the poverty line, and the gap between the wealthiest in our nation and all others continues to grow, faith leaders are invited to attend and stand in solidarity with the CBC as we pray for the consciousness of America to be awakened and united against this startling and harrowing trend.

This event is free and open to the public.
