PPF is called to be movers and shakers within the PC(USA) and beyond, encouraging one another to take seriously God’s call to God’s people to participate in God’s nonviolent work of love, peace, and justice in the world. Advocacy at General Assembly is an important part of how we answer this call.
As we approach the 224th General Assembly in June 2020 in Baltimore, MD, this page will be regularly updated with information about PPF’s support and advocacy.
SAVE THE DATE for these events with PPF at GA. Details forthcoming.
COUNTER CUFI – The Israel-Palestine Mission Network invite all Presbyterians attending the General Assembly to extend their stay thru June 29 to participate in this important action with Friends of Sabeel North America to cin Washington, DC. You can extend your hotel stay in Baltimore and take the train down to DC or book a new hotel in D.C. to join us.
PPF has a wide array of opportunities for volunteers during General Assembly – from staffing our table to supporting our events.
Please fill out this form to let us know you’re interested — we will follow up with you with information about specific volunteer roles.

Amanda Marbut (she/her) is a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) originally from San Antonio, TX. Her background is in International Relations and has a passion for social justice. She now lives in Tucson, AZ and want to help in any way possible with the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship mission.
Laura Haney (she/her) calls Virginia home, but she is currently living in Tucson, Arizona and serving as a Young Adult Volunteer. During this year she is volunteering with an organization that provides free home repairs for low income homeowners. Her favorite parts of this are doing hands on work, and talking with the people she’s serving to know more about them and their lives. Laura has a love for the outdoors and she is passionate about justice issues, specifically environmental and border issues. She is hoping to have a future career in camping ministry where she can work with children and help them experience the beauty of the outdoors as God’s creation. Laura is excited to be interning for PPF so she can learn more about what peacemaking as a way of caring for people and creation looks like.
Julie Woodson (she/her) is a lifelong Presbyterian from Greenville, SC. She graduated from Wofford College with a degree in Art History, Business, and Gender Studies in May of 2018. After college, she answered a call to serve with the Young Adult Volunteer program in Albuquerque, NM, where she worked at the Menaul School and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. This transformative experience pushed her to realize a call towards service in the form of advocacy. She is passionate about social justice and peacemaking and combining those with her belief in the power of the arts to reach people in deeper, more meaningful ways. Now back in her hometown, she enjoys hiking, reading, cooking, and traveling. She is thrilled to join the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship at GA this summer and for the opportunity to continue learning, questioning, and discerning alongside such a great team!
