The pastors and churches are grateful for the civil rights violation letter sent to Governor Newsom from the Department of Justice on May 19, 2020 from Eric S. Dreiband, Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division, realizing the unfair treatment and discrimination towards houses of worship in California.

Last Thursday, Bishop Bob Jackson of Acts Full Gospel, Oakland hosted Church United's Northern California news conference. Bishop Barber of the Catholic Diocese also joined the evangelical coalition and messaged that the Church is essential.

Southern California San Diego pastors are uniting to share a Church United message titled #OpenTheDoors and sign a Declaration of Essentiality at ChurchUnited.com to re-open church doors across the state of California.
