Marching for Justice!
Members of Hadwen Park Church often march with the Mass. Conference of the United Church of Christ and the LGBT Asylum Seekers Task Force in the annual Worcester, Springfield and Boston Pride parades. Task Force marchers wear paper bags over their heads to symbolize that gay people have to hide their identify in 76 countries around the world where being gay is "illegal." Some have laws which allow the death penalty for this offense.
LGBT Asylum Task Force
Hadwen Park Church stands in prayerful support of our Black members, Black neighbors, and the entire Black community.
Our heart breaks, as God’s heart breaks, at the racism that persists in our country. We pledge to take action, as Jesus did, for justice and against inequality.
