The Episcopal Church is one of nearly 50 religious groups sponsoring this year’s Ecumenical Advocacy Days March 9–12 in Washington, D.C.
The theme of the fifth annual gathering of social-justice advocates from around the nation is “… and How are the Children?” Nearly 1,300 religious advocates are expected to attend.
The theme, focusing on issues affecting children, will guide and inspire workshops and speakers in eight different areas of concern: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, domestic, jubilee and economic justice, eco-justice, and global security. Experts will train participants on how to do advocacy and inform them of U.S. domestic and international policies that impact all of God’s children.
The gathering will conclude with a visit to Capitol Hill where participants will ask their Congressional representatives to make the needs of children the center of the 2007 legislative agenda.
