Be the Love Campaign is a Community Development Corporation of Capital City Church, a dynamic, multi-cultural congregation in the Washington, DC area committed to seeing real life change, and serves as the social justice and outreach arm of the Church.
Be the Love Campaign is all about empowering people to be the change in their world. We recognize that empathy is not enough to solve the problems that we face. We believe that while the statistics of suffering in our world today are overwhelming, we, together are not powerless. We have something in our hand and when we band together we can have a tremendous impact for good. From global opportunities to local community outreach, we are intentional about communicating value, strength and most of all love.
Here’s how you can join the movement!
BE THE LOVE LOCAL
Capital City Church believes strongly in loving its neighbors. We practice this belief by engaging regularly in church wide community service projects throughout the DC Metropolitan Area. Recent outreach projects have included collecting non-perishable food items for kids through Blessings in a Backpack, serving meals at the McKenna Center, hosting a BBQ at DC General Shelter, attending a training at Pathways to Housing DC, delivering Easter baskets to homeless individuals near GWU, and a collection for New Beginning Shelter. It is our heart to see the DC metropolitan area not just survive, but thrive, and we are willing to help make that happen however we can. Check out the link below to see what upcoming service events we have planned, and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to find out more or sign up!
We also want to empower you to use what is in your hand to make a difference. Are you an artist? An organizer? Chef? Whatever it is that you do well, we want to encourage you to think creatively about how you can use that gift to raise awareness and funds for this issue. For example, if you have a home and a TV, plan a movie showing and invite your friends. It could be as simple as hosting a dinner party and asking your guests to consider giving towards this cause. You could ask friends and family to donate to this cause in lieu a birthday presents. There are many ways that we can join together to make a difference. All it takes is action.

BE THE LOVE GLOBAL
Modern Day Slavery is the second largest criminal industry in the world. Today it is estimated that over 12 million people worldwide are trafficked (Source: United Nations). These statistics seem overwhelming but each number represents a life. Each life has a story. Every life deserves freedom.
Capital City Church’s Be the Love Campaign is is committed to partnering with the A21 Campaign to right the injustice of slavery. We are joining with them to support their mission to raise awareness, take legal action where appropriate, and offer rehabilitation services to rescued victims of human trafficking in order to fight this injustice from a comprehensive approach. Through monthly support and annual initiatives, Be The Love is a significant advocate for the cause of A21. For more information about the A21 Campaign visit their website at www.a21.org.
24,000 children die each day from preventable causes (Source: UNICEF). Many of those children die simply because they do not have adequate food to make it through the day. Capital City Church’s Be the Love Campaign is supporting Joint Aid Management (JAM) in their goal of feeding 1 million African children each day. JAM is an African founded, registered non-profit humanitarian relief and development organization, with 26 years experience in sustainable development. JAM’s programs focus on nutritional feeding, school feeding, assistance to orphans and vulnerable children, the provision of water and sanitation, as well as skills development, community training on agricultural development, income generation projects and HIV/AIDS programming.
