Ecumenical Advocacy Days: ‘A World Uprooted’

New Director Rev. Dr. Leslie Copeland-Tune, and the Leadership Team of Ecumenical Advocacy Days for Global Peace with Justice, are pleased to announce the theme for the organization’s 16th annual National Gathering in Washington, D.C. April 20 – 23, 2018, as registration opens for the premier Christian advocacy event in our nation’s capital.

Ecumenical Advocacy Days 2018 will focus on the “uprootedness” of our world. We will analyze current policy and envision ways to more fully and justly respond to the global and local needs of displaced communities. Through prayer, worship, advocacy training, and networking, we will seek policy changes that advance hope and overcome the devastating impacts of conflict, climate change and corruption on God’s people.Ecumenical Advocay Days for Global Peace with Justice

Join us at the 16th annual EAD National Gathering, “A World Uprooted: Responding to Migrants, Refugees and Displaced People,” where we will equip ourselves to boldly speak and act on behalf of the least of these, proclaim God’s mandate for justice, righteousness and mercy and encourage one another to be salt, light and beacons of hope in an uprooted world.
