FAIR HAVEN, NJ – the Greater Red Bank Church Women United Unit will celebrate Human Rights Day at Fisk Chapel AME in Fair Haven on Fisk St. at 11am on March 4th. Everyone is welcome to attend. This year’s theme for Church Women United is “Living the Legacy, Driving the Movement” and refers to the 70 years that Church Women United has been living the legacy of our founding mothers, and the need for us to continue to “drive” the movement.
