What does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Yesterday, Donald Trump forced out Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and replaced him with Matthew Whitaker, who has openly attacked special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

We can't let Trump get away with this. 

Can you join an emergency rally near you at 5pm tonight?

If you believe in Micah 6:8 and consider yourself a committed person of faith, we must stand up to Trump's total disregard for justice. We must act justly TONIGHT, love mercy TONIGHT, and walk humbly into the streets in protest. 

We won’t miss Jeff Sessions. He’s spent the last two years as Attorney General attacking civil rights and enabling the Trump administration’s worst instincts. His time at the Department of Justice was marked by profound injustice.

But by pushing out Sessions and replacing him with a political hack, Trump has put Mueller’s critical investigation in jeopardy, and our democracy in crisis.

Our response right now will determine the future of our country: will we accept Trump’s authoritarianism or will we defend our democracy?

 

Congress has the ability to protect Mueller’s investigation and hold Trump accountable — and we need your help to make sure they hear a public outcry to take action. That’s why I'm asking you to attend emergency “Nobody is Above the Law” rallies at 5pm tonight. 

Find a rapid-response event near you and join thousands of Americans to protect our democracy at 5pm TONIGHT.

I'll be at my local rally here in Louisville, and hope you will turn out to the rally closest to you. 

While I will be there and show up, it will be with a heavy heart that is burdened by all of the bad news in the past 24 hours: Trump consolidating power, Ruth Bader Ginsburg's hospitalization, and the mass shooting in California. It's times like these that I find it difficult to write prayers in these letters. And so today, instead of writing a new prayer, I offer you the words of Oscar Romero. I hope you will pray them with me as we take to the streets tonight.

Let us not be disheartened, even when the horizon of history grows dim and closes in, as though human realities made impossible the accomplishment of God’s plans. God makes use even of human errors, even of human sins, so as to make rise over the darkness what Isaiah spoke of. One day prophets will sing not only the return from Babylon but our full liberation. "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light. They walk in lands of shadows, but a light has shone forth." (Isaiah 9:1–2)  
 
See you tonight.
