#EAD2018 Pre-Gathering Event
Our Call to Speak Up for Displaced People
Friday, April 20, 2018, Afternoon
Sponsored by the National Council of the Churches of Christ
Millions of people cross borders each year fleeing violence and seeking better lives. Christians gathering at the 2018 Ecumenical Advocacy Days will be speaking up for displaced people and challenging the powers that dehumanize and discriminate against them. But what are the foundations for Christian advocacy on behalf of migrants and refugees? Sponsored by the National Council of Churches, this workshop will explore theological and biblical resources for analyzing the global forces – war, climate change, famine, and more – which uproot people from their homelands, and how we can sustain and deepen our solidarity with the uprooted.
Additional information about speakers will be provided as it becomes available. Please check back.
