Radcliffe Room – First Floor

In addition to offering a warm place to gather with other people of faith, we will provide some simple food and beverages, including an ample supply of hot coffee, tea and cider!
The detailed schedule is still being worked out, but the space is available to us all day (9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.), so you can drop by at anytime for respite from the cold, to get some nourishment or to use the facilities.
The human chain event is scheduled to end around 2:00 p.m., so we anticipate that most people will arrive after that. We plan to begin the interfaith service around 3:00 p.m. Leadership for the interfaith service will include Rev. J. Herbert Nelson of the Washington Office of the Presbyterian Church USA, Rabbi Rachel Kahn-Troster of Rabbis for Human Rights-North America, Sister Patricia Chappell of Pax Christi USA, and Dr. Sayyid Syeed of the Islamic Society of North America.
Witness Against Torture has floor sleeping space reserved at St Stephen and the Incarnation Church, located at 1525 Newton Street NW (at 16th street) for January 10-12.
