Take a Knee in Solidarity

Join our virtual action in support of racial justice. We take a knee to pray, to propose marriage, to pause in reflection, to embrace a small child, to pay respect, to grieve, to humble ourselves. We can follow the example of those all over the country, from peaceful protesters to celebrities to figures in law enforcement, who are taking a knee.
