Reclaiming Our Prophetic Voices

Interfaith Worker Justice-New Mexico 
 invites you to 
"Witness for the People "
Monday, January 16, 2:00 PM 
in the Rotunda of the Roundhouse

People of faith and conscience will gather to hear the State of Our State Address and proclaim our priorities for the 2017 Legislative Session. This year, the legislature will meet for 60 days. The event will also feature The New Mexico Peace Choir, directed by Christy Conduff. The gathering will follow the Martin Luther King Day Celebration sponsored by the Santa Fe NAACP

Interfaith Worker Justice-New Mexico has organized the event at the start of the legislative session for the past several years. Rev. Dr. James Forbes of Riverside Church in New York was featured at the gathering in 2015. Rev. Bert Scott also offered a prayer that year on behalf of the Interfaith Hunger Coalition.
 We aim to recover our prophetic voices

Woe to those who build their palaces
by unrighteousness, their upper rooms by injustice,making their own people work for nothing, not paying them for their labor.
- Jeremiah 22.13
