Ecumenical Advocacy Days – March 25th – 28th

Development, Security and Economic Justice: What’s Gender Got to do with It?
As women and men of faith, we can be a formidable force for change in the treatment of women around the world and, as Proverbs teaches, the recognition of their vital contributions to social, religious, and family life.

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 people-centered sustainable development and economic justice, physical safety, security and peacemaking, with a particular focus on those most impacted – women, girls and families.

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 and girls, keeping them from attaining their full potential and impacting the wholeness and vibrancy of the full community.

Prepare now to hear from internationally known policy experts, stimulating theologians and inspiring preachers -- along with Administration officials, Congressional aides and advocacy specialists.
