With headquarters on the front step of the nation’s capital, CANA East is uniquely positioned to confront and transform injustice. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we draw attention to the persecution of Christians around the world, stand up for those who are enslaved or wrongly imprisoned, challenge government infringement of religious freedoms, and insist on protection for the most vulnerable among us including the poor, the elderly, the sick, and the unborn.
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter -- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 58:6-8 (NIV1984)
