Alliance offers condolences, issues call to act

In light of recent events targeting Jewish and African American people in Jeffersontown, Ky., and Pittsburgh, Pa., we - the Alliance of Baptists - are once again compelled to express our shared pain and solidarity with oppressed peoples and communities.

We offer condolences to the families of the 11 individuals killed Oct. 27 at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue – Joyce Fienberg, Richard Gottfried, Rose Mallinger, Jerry Rabinowitz, Cecil Rosenthal, David Rosenthal, Bernice Simon, Sylvan Simon, Daniel Stein, Melvin Wax, Irving Younger – and to the families of two killed Oct. 24 at a Louisville, Ky.-area Kroger store – Maurice Stallard and Vickie Lee Jones.

We deplore these acts of violence and the narratives that give rise to these acts.

Speak out against 'public charge' rule change

It will only take a few minutes to submit your comments, and it's important that you do so given the current administration's proposed rule that would drastically reshape who we welcome as newcomers to our society. The proposed rule would reshape immigration policy by expanding the definition of who is considered a "public charge," threatening millions of families - many of our neighbors.  

The Nuns on the Bus have made it really easy to express our concerns, and we have until Dec. 10 to take action. Submit your comments today opposing the "public charge" rule, and be sure to personalize them with your own faith convictions and stories of people you know and love who will be impacted by the change.

Oakland’s Lakeshore Avenue Baptist partners with nonprofit to bring solar to the church

In an effort designed to contribute "to greening our world," Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church in Oakland, Calif., has launched a crowdfunding campaign to solarize its building. 

The church, an Alliance of Baptists congregational partner, has joined with RE-volv 'Solar Champions' to raise $40,000 for the 19.5 kW solar array it needs. Once in place it will save the church more than $143,000 during the lifetime of the system and stop more than 1 million pounds of CO2  from being emitted into the atmosphere.
