Interfaith Rally for Mental Health Services
December 4, 2022, 3:30pm, Trinity Presbyterian Church, Herndon, VA
On December 4 join hundreds of Northern Virginia Jews, Christians, Muslims, Unitarian Universalists and others, gathered by VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement). The event will focus on the mental health and addiction crisis facing our community, and how the state and county can provide emergency centers to treat neighbors rather than incarcerating them. VOICE has aligned with VA Hospital leaders and Police Chiefs on a gold standard to address the crisis. Elected officials will be at the December 4 event, and we need a large crowd to impress on them that this is a serious concern.
Past MVUC minister Linda Olson Peebles will be attending, and invites people to carpool with her to Trinity Presbyterian Church in Herndon (leaving MVUC at 2:45). Contact LOPeebles@aol.com, to learn more.
