Come Celebrate 65 years of Presbyterian Presence in Washington, DC!
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Office of Public Witness in Washington, DC is inviting Presbyterians to join us in the nation's capital on March 25th through March 28th, 2011 for this exciting and informative event!
Ecumenical Advocacy Days is a movement of the ecumenical Christian community, grounded in biblical witness and our shared traditions of justice and peace. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been an official sponsor of EAD for almost a decade and one of our own staff members, Catherine Gordon, is a founding member of the conference. The goal of the conference is to strengthen our Christian voice and to mobilize for advocacy on a wide variety of U.S. domestic and international policy issues.
During EAD, Presbyterians will celebrate 65 years of prophetic work through the gospel of Jesus Christ in Washington, DC. You don't want to miss it!
A training day for Compassion, Peace and Justice Ministries will take place on the morning and afternoon of the 25th. Look for more details on both of these events in the coming weeks. Right now, mark your calendar and register!

Development, Security and Economic Justice:
What's Gender Got to Do with It?
Gender's got a lot to do with it!
As Proverbs recognized long ago, women's contributions are integral to enriching social, religious, and family life. However — in homes and communities, out in fields and marketplaces, along borders and in areas of conflict — violence, poverty, and other social evils disproportionately affect women, keeping them from attaining their full potential and impacting the wholeness and vibrancy of the community.
As women and men of faith, we can be a formidable force for change! Come to Ecumenical Advocacy Days, March 25-28, 2011, in Washington, DC. During these days filled with worship and dialogue, we will be inspired and equipped to speak boldly on behalf of all God's daughters and the betterment of communities.
Together we'll advocate on Capitol Hill for women and girl's physical and emotional safety, their economic security and freedom, and promote people-centered ecologically-sustainable development, economic justice and peace for the flourishing of all our communities.
Prepare now to hear from internationally known policy experts, stimulating theologians and inspiring preachers — along with Administration officials, Congressional aides and advocacy specialists.
Spread the word and stay tuned to hear more from EAD's new coordinator, Douglas G. Grace, M.Div., S.T.M., about the March 25-28, 2011 conference and its exciting and dynamic speakers.
