United Church of Christ Organizes Rallies, Protests While in Long Beach for Conference

On Thursday, they began to arrive in Long Beach by the thousands–progressive Christians from the United Church of Christ, in town for their denomination’s biennial national conference. And by Tuesday when their General Synod is complete, UCC members will have organized at least three rallies in support of marriage equality and immigration reform and performed one gay marriage during their time at the Long Beach Convention Center.
