Imagine! God’s Earth and People Restored
Compassion, Peace and Justice Training Days
April 7-9 | Virtual Event
Join us to learn, organize and advocate around environmental justice! Compassion, Peace and Justice Training Days offer an opportunity to support this global movement centered on and led by the people and communities most vulnerable to climate impacts due to historic racial and colonial inequities. We continue to see how the historic reality of colonialism and structural racism has designed systems that live on today through environmental racism and a myriad of other injustices that grew out of the same evil roots. Throughout 2020, these systemic issues manifested themselves in the disproportionate number of racial and ethnic minorities who became sick with and died of COVID-19, as well as the continued extrajudicial killing of Black men and women.
The Earth and its people are groaning. We are called to respond.
CPJ Days will feature Claudio Carvalhaes and Harry Pickens, along with our partners from the most impacted communities in the United States and around the globe. We will have several sessions to delve deep into the issues of the day as well as address our current brokenness and how we lay the groundwork for justice and reconciliation. The complete schedule is being developed and will be posted as soon as it is complete.
Ecumenical Advocacy Days — April 18–21
A little over a week later, join the larger faith community for Ecumenical Advocacy Days. This is a gathering of Christian advocates and activists to worship, delve deeply into the pressing issues of the day and lift our voices by speaking truth to power on Capitol Hill.
