March Resources


The Interfaith March for Peace & Justice was initiated by a small group of people in Columbus, OH. Here, people of all ages and colors and faiths marched on April 2, 2017, shoulder to shoulder with some who have no religious affiliation but were moved by a sense of urgency and civic pride. 

On April 29, 2018, the march in Columbus was repeated along with sister marches across the country. As the organizers seek to build on this momentum for 2019, they invite you to join them; to be a part of the movement for love and compassion.

Michael Greenman is a former board member of UUJEC. As a member of the First UU Church of Columbus, he led a team during the denomination’s annual gathering in June 2013, that obtained their approval to encourage congregations all around the country to focus on supporting the passage of a constitutional amendment to declare that “corporations are not persons” and “money is not speech”.  In 2014, he became the Moderator of the Social Justice Committee (SJC) of the Interfaith Association of Central Ohio (IACO). SJC is bringing together the nine member faiths of IACO to collaborate on efforts to support justice projects in this greater Columbus area.  IACO and First UU are among the sponsors of the 2018 Interfaith March for Peace and Justice. 

Greg Davis is a member of the North Columbus Friends Meeting and the Safe Alliance of Interfaith Leaders in Columbus, OH. With help from many excellent partners, he was able to organize an Interfaith March for Peace & Justice in April 2017. Looking ahead to 2018, he is excited to see this concept spreading to other locations nationwide. He is very grateful for the support of many UU congregations and hopes to develop many new partnerships in the near future to promote the success of the national event on April 29, 2018.
