Women's March on Washington

On the weekend of January 21-22, 2017, women (and men) from around the country will come to Washington DC to demonstrate against sexism and other bigotries.

All Souls, as well as many other area UU congregations, has been receiving many requests from UUs across the country seeking housing for that weekend. We are doing our best to help, but the demand is so high that we will probably not be able to fulfill them all. Please bear with us!

Also, the location and time of the March are not yet known. Many of the large public spaces in Washington (including the Mall around the Lincoln Memorial) had long been booked when the March was announced. We will share the updated information once we have it. We will also attempt to identify a UU meeting place. Whenever and wherever the March ends up happening, there will be a hospitality event at All Souls Church afterward with soup, singing, and fellowship. And everyone is invited to worship with us on Sunday morning at our 9:30 or 11:15 am services.

All Souls is offering two kinds of accommodations for the March weekend:

Bed & Breakfast (an ongoing program): Guests have a private room, bed, and—you guessed it—breakfast! A two-night minimum stay is required. The fee is $95 per night single or $145 per night double. There is currently a waiting list for this program and we are trying to recruit more hosts.

Couch-surfing (a special program for the March): Guests can register their interest/willingness to take a bed, couch, or floor space. There is no minimum stay and no breakfast included. The couch-surfing fee is on a sliding scale of $25-50 per person, per night. Guests are asked to consider their budgets and pay whatever they can between $25 and $50. Once guests are paired with a host, payment of the fee will guarantee your reservation.

We look forward to seeing you in DC!

The Washington Post included All Souls in an article about the important role that churches are playing as we process our country's changing character.

Public Radio International's The World interviewed Rev. Hardies about the concept of sanctuary and our church's commitment to providing it to vulnerable people.
