Churches in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area Prepare to Lead
Stand Up! Make the Covenant Rally 


WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the wake of this week’s tragic murders of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota; and the police officers in Dallas, Texas,  the leadership and the congregants of churches within the Greater Washington area will lead the Stand Up! Make the Covenant rally. The rally will be held in remembrance of the lives lost and in solidarity with the community and law enforcement.
