Join us for
Advocacy Training Weekend
Compassion Peace and Justice Training Day – April 24th
Ecumenical Advocacy Days – April 24th – 27th
Imagine! God’s Earth and People Restored
Around the world, the most marginalized communities disproportionately affected by hunger, poverty, and the structural history of colonialism and racism are experiencing the impacts of the climate crisis most profoundly. Women and children in these communities suffer the most.
Earth and its people are groaning and calling for us to respond in hope. We are all affected. Temperatures are rising dramatically and dangerously everywhere, disrupting ecological systems and every type of human activity. The generations of tomorrow depend on what we do today.
Compassion Peace and Justice Training Day and Ecumenical Advocacy Days 2020 will explore the intersection of climate change and economic injustice. This will galvanize our advocacy on behalf of policies and programs to chip away at the systems of oppression that keep people in poverty and push all life on earth to the brink of destruction.
