Advocacy Training Weekend 2016

April 15–18, 2016 in Washington, D.C.

Advocacy Training Weekend consists of Compassion Peace and Justice Training Day (April 15) and Ecumenical Advocacy Days (April 15-18).

“Lift every voice and sing, Till earth and heaven ring, Ring with the harmonies of Liberty; Let our rejoicing rise High as the list’ning skies, Let it resound loud as the rolling sea...Let us march on till victory is won.” –James Weldon Johnson

“Lift Every Voice: Racism, Class, and Power”

Advocacy Training Weekend 2016

april 15–18, 2016

Compassion Peace and Justice Training Day - April 15

Ecumenical Advocacy Days
April 15-18


In our neighborhoods and around the world, social, economic, corporate, and political powers are working to reduce citizens’ access to decision-making. These practices violate the rights and silence the voices of those most affected by these decisions and severely hamper the ability of all citizens to determine the best policies for our communities and nations. As Christians, God calls us to lift up all voices so that we the people might regain influence in the policies that affect our nation and our world. Come to Advocacy Training Weekend April 15-18 and lift up your voice for transparent and participatory government at home and abroad.

At Compassion Peace and Justice Training Day, we will take a look at how Presbyterians are working to address the suppression of political and economic rights of people of color, immigrants, workers, and the poor in our own country and abroad. We will examine how decisions that affect the global economy, our day-to-day life, and the well-being of the entire global community are being made in secret with little or no transparency or accountability.

Join the ecumenical community for Ecumenical Advocacy Days, beginning the evening of Friday April 15th and culminating with a lobby day on Monday April 18th. Lift up your voice alongside other people of faith as you speak truth to power concerning the suppression of political and economic rights and the corporate undermining of the local voices of ordinary people, in the U.S. and around the world.
