Ecumenical Advocacy Days will take place on March 19-22 in Washington D.C. This year's theme is "A Place to Call Home: Immigrants, Refugees, and Displaced Peoples." The event is a time for people of faith to learn more about this topic from a variety of perspectives, gain insight on how to effectively lobby on this issue, and then lobby Congress on the final day of the event.
The event offers a variety of tracks having to do with immigration, including an Eco-Justice track, that will look at the various ties between justice, environment, climate, and immigration issues. The Global Economic Justice track will include a workshop on climate justice.
Ecumenical Advocacy Days is a great time to meet other people of faith who are passionate about justice issues. Visit the Ecumenical Advocacy Days website to learn more and register.
After you register, contact the Presbyterian Washington Office to register for the Presbyterian dinner on March 20.
Paul Monteiro, Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, will be the speaker at the dinner. His office is responsible for building relationships with advocacy groups, non-governmental organizations, and elected state officials. It is also the primary channel through which the public relates to the White House.
