Sleep Out Winston-Salem is the major, annual fundraising event for The Bethesda Center for the Homeless, as well as the perfect night to gain valuable insight into the plight of homelessness in Forsyth County, and how you can be a part of making a difference.

The purpose is to give participants the opportunity to become more aware of the reality of homelessness that is present in Winston-Salem, while doing so in an informative and enjoyable evening in Bailey Park, located in the beautiful Innovation Quarter of Downtown Winston-Salem.

Everything from live music, to receiving a "Snack Pack" meal for dinner, to opportunities to enjoy conversations about homelessness in our city, and so much more.

In Nipsey's death, many saw the terror & tragedy that far too many of our lesser known kinfolk have suffered. His murder caused so many to re-live the all too familiar pain of seeing the beauty, gifts, & potential of our brightest taken far too soon.   How do we heal from this trauma?  How do we stop the violence in our communities & our world?  How do we become instruments of peace?   These are age-old questions that were also on the mind of oppressed people in the 1st Century who had looked to another 33 year older from a "hood" called Nazareth for hope & freedom.   Is there a connection between the pain of 1st century Nazareth, the pain of Crenshaw, & the pain of Northeast & East Winston?   Join The Drum Majors Alliance on Friday April 19th @ 830pm as we wrestle with these questions, call our community to embrace the things that make for peace, & remember the death of Jesus AND loved ones we've lost to violence this year.

The Cross & The Case for Reparations

In 1619–exactly 400 years ago—the brutal, shameful, & sinful Transatlantic slave trade began. Millions upon millions of image-of-God bearing African peoples were enslaved, exploited, abused, raped, dehumanized, & killed in its wake. Though 400 years removed from its inception, the U.S. has yet to truly confront the legacy of chattel slavery & as a result we are haunted by its after-life. Where do we go from here?  How do we heal? How does a nation repair irreparable damage?   What, if anything, does The Cross have to do with the idea of reparations? In this strange  socio-political moment in which "reparations" is on the lips of  so many, what do we learn from "the mouth"  of Jesus, the Prophets, & the Torah? Join the Drum Majors Alliance on Thursday April 18th @ 7pm for a panel discussion exploring these pressing questions.

Freedom Ride

palmsundayfreedomride.jpg

Join the Drum Majors Alliance for this year’s Palm Sunday “Freedom Ride”. The Freedom Ride is a local pilgrimage that explores & exposes both historic & present injustices in the city of Winston-Salem. It is a unique time of prophetic truth-telling, prayer, singing, and protest against every force that oppresses & divides our city. A diverse crowd of about 40 will hop on a bus & travel to historic, symbolic, and strategic locations in Winston-Salem. From the Montgomery Bus Boycott to the Freedom rides of the 60's, buses were an important sight of resistance & resilience in the face of social death & suffering. Our prayer is that each stop, each turn, and each story lifted up on the bus will push the Church & people of good conscious to participate in the present struggle for freedom, beloved community, and true peace locally & abroad.
