Bring 3+ to the Nehemiah Action Assembly!

1. Create a list of 6+ people you know and invite them to the Nehemiah Action by April 5, 2019!  Use the Nehemiah Action Invitation Template to help make meaningful, engaging invitations! Make sure to invite others in a way that speaks to their interest in doing justice and creating rootlevel change in our community. Ask for a clear response to your invitation, and create a plan for following up.

2. Give each guest who says “yes!” an Action ticket and save the date card and (optionally) ask them to sign up for an Action pass and updates at

3. Follow up with your Action invitees 2 weeks and again 2-3 days before the Nehemiah Action Share what you learned at the Justice Rally, plan transportation if needed, and give each person you’re inviting an Action ticket. Share the research updates that you receive at the Justice Rally with your Action guests. Discuss how they have experienced or witness these problems in our community, and what will change in our community when we bring proven solutions. Make sure your Action guests know that RISC members have spent hundreds of hours researching and met with the decision-makers at length before the Action to discuss the commitments they will be asked to make. There are no surprises, and our aim is to be fair, respectful, organized, and direct.

4. Show up with 3 or more people on May 2nd for the largest interfaith public gathering in central VA – the Nehemiah Action Assembly!
