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

Over 1,200 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.

This year, we’re addressing elementary reading in Richmond and Henrico County, childhood trauma in Chesterfield County, and job training in our region. People power makes change possible!


Justice Celebration - June 11, 2018, 6:30-8:00pm

Enjoy food and fellowship with RISC members from all 22 congregations!

Celebrate the justice we achieved in our community at this year’s Nehemiah Action, and hear the latest updates on the initial results.

Invest in the future of our justice ministry.

Honor outstanding leaders and congregations, and everyone who made this year’s work possible.
