At this time of year, many people resolve to take up new tasks. To make better choices for themselves. We encourage you to also use this time to resolve to make good choices for your community and for all of God’s Kingdom by engaging in activism and social justice work in the coming year.
Join us for Compassion, Peace, and Justice Training Day and Ecumenical Advocacy days as we work to stir up #GoodTrouble for the sake of God’s kingdom.
2019 Ecumenical Advocacy Days Conference will draw on #GoodTrouble pioneers from the Civil Rights era as well as inspiration from young leaders to learn from the past, share best practices, and encourage one another for the work ahead. Through worship, educational and training workshops, and advocacy, we will beckon the Spirit to “Trouble the Waters” as depicted in John 5:1-9, calling on God to bring healing to our nation and world. Join us as we envision and train for new ways to stir up #GoodTrouble for the healing of all God’s children.
With opening worship led by Rev. Jimmie Hawkins and keynote speaker David LaMotte, we begin our Advocacy Training Weekend with the PC(USA) Compassion, Peace, and Justice Training day. Gather with your fellow Presbyterians as we look at how our church and our partners are working to organize for change. In plenaries and workshops we will look at the Church as movement and as well as ways to build movements for change. We will hear from inspiring leaders and learn about past present and future efforts to bring about a more just society and world. We will offer concrete tools and strategies for members and their congregations to organize and advocate in their churches and local communities.
