Free housing for UCC groups coming to DC for marches

ProtestGreetings to our UCC friends and colleagues.

There are several big marches taking place in DC in the coming weeks and months. Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ is happy to offer free sleeping space and basic accommodations for any UCC groups coming to DC for the following events:

•         March for Science. Sat, Apr. 22
•         People’s Climate March. Sat, Apr. 29
•         Immigrants March. Sat, May 6
•         Equality March for Unity and Pride, Sun, June 11.

Westmoreland UCC is located at 1 Westmoreland Circle in Bethesda, MD—immediately across the street from DC at the intersection of Massachusetts and Western Avenues.

The accommodations we can offer are not luxurious—basically floor space for sleeping bags and pillows. But the cost may be right—free.

Our Social Justice & Action Board has taken on this effort to welcome marchers because we feel that opening our building is a good way to live out the Christian value of hospitality. We feel that providing space encourages people to add their voices to the grand choir of democracy.  And we feel that these four marches—focusing on science, immigration, the climate, and LGBTQ rights—are very much in keeping with our UCC values and the values of our local congregation.

So, if you know of any UCC groups headed to DC for these marches, tell them to contact us. (And honestly, we’re not limiting this to UCC’ers. If you know other groups who need lodging, please connect them with us.)
