InspireDC is a non-profit network started by The United Methodist Church to inspire justice and community one meal and conversation at a time. It currently includes worshiping communities that young adults love to attend, community-based free markets & meals and an affordable housing coalition. We are building a network of churches and non-profits to ensure everyone in DC has healthy food, a decent job and a roof over their heads.
So many people come to DC to make a difference. We seek to connect the inspired and to inspire those who have lost hope. The larger the network, the greater the good.
When InspireDC was first founded we were clear that what DC (and the world) needs is love. Not a love that is possessive or exclusive but 1LOVE that liberates and crosses all lines of difference. We are about intentionally advocating for and creating communities where diverse people of all backgrounds find common ground through celebrating (not ignoring or yelling about) our differences, our humanity, and our connection with one true Love. On Human Rights Day 2016 we celebrated 1LOVE through song, poetry, dance, and food. We continue to mobilize around the pursuit of abundant life, love, liberation, dignity and true equality in a variety of ways.
Want to get involved? Here are some steps you can take:
- Connect with 1LOVE hosts on Sunday mornings (Raimon Jackson at The Table Church) or evenings (Matthew Wilke at The Bridge).
- Tell us what 1LOVE! means to you on your favorite social media outlet using #1LOVE! or on our Facebook wall.
- Let us know how you want to collaborate with us.
