“When the great Jewish cleric, Abraham Joshua Heschel, marched with Dr. King he said he felt like his feet were praying. This is a prayer breakfast. And I do believe in the power of prayer. But what we need when we leave this place are some praying feet. In this moment in our nation, when naked bigotry pushes its agenda in public policy and raises its voice in the public square, unashamed and unabashed, we need some hands and feet, heads and hearts praying and working together. And together, we can rise up and fly!”
The breakfast begins at 9:55 a.m. at the White House.
