EAD Announces 2024 Spring Summit – ‘Faith in Action: Advancing Human Rights and Peace for All’

February 20, 2024

The Leadership Team of EAD has chosen a two-part path forward and we are excited to invite you to support and walk with us. Those two components of our work throughout 2024 will include focusing our attention on a strategic planning process to envision EAD’s bold future while also organizing a smaller, focused EAD “summit” May 17-19 to keep EAD in the minds (and calendars) of our sponsor organizations and advocates. The title of that in-person event in Washington, D.C. is “Faith in Action: Advancing Human Rights and Peace for All.”

Our hope for the strategic planning process throughout the year is to consider all that we have learned from recent attendee feedback over the last three virtual conferences, along with the years of experience of hosting in-person conferences, to consider a new vision going forward for the future of EAD given the changed world we now live in.

Our respective organizations have undergone transformation post-pandemic, limiting time for most and resources for some. The needs in the communities we serve are greater than ever before. Our attendees are eager to gather in person to connect with their peers, especially in this election year. The EAD 2024 Spring Summit will include advocacy training for new and growing participant categories (seminary students, young adults) and will offer a chance for those who work with domestic and international priorities to connect and share. Ultimately, we want the universal voice of God, one of compassion, justice and peace, to be lifted during these challenging times.


Ecumenical Advocacy Days is a movement of the ecumenical Christian community, and its recognized partners and allies, grounded in biblical witness and our shared traditions of justice, peace and the integrity of creation. Our goal, through worship, theological reflection and opportunities for learning and witness, is to strengthen our Christian voice and to mobilize for advocacy on a wide variety of U.S. domestic and international policy issues.
