RISC Nehemiah Action Assembly


RISC Nehemiah Action Assembly

The culminating event of the entire year for RISC congregations! AND the largest interfaith public gathering in Central VA!

Over 1,000 justice-seekers from dozens of congregations transcend racial, socioeconomic, and religious differences to take action for justice. We hear the stories of those affected by community problems and secure specific commitments from our local decision-makers to address the root causes of injustice.


We believe that people power makes change possible. In 2016, over 1,000 people gathered and asked directors of VCU Health System and HCA Virginia (which includes Chippenham and Henrico Doctors’ Hospitals) to recruit employees through our community workforce centers. They said yes!

Our power is in large numbers of organized people, and together we accomplish significant changes in our community!
