Ecumenical Advocacy Days
Ecumenical Advocacy Days | April 4-5, 2013 | Washington, DC
Join 1,000 Christian advocates at the 11th annual Ecumenical Advocacy Days to seek Food Justice for a Healthy World! In a world that produces enough food for everyone, EAD will explore the injustices in global food systems that leave one billion people hungry, create food price shocks that destabilize communities everywhere, and undermine God’s creation. At God’s Table, all are invited and fed, and the poorest in our midst are given a special place. Together we will seek the abundance and equality that we find reflected in the biblical image of God’s great banquet table (Exodus 16:16-18 & Luke 14:12-24). Inspiring speakers will offer a faith-based vision for fair and humane food policies and practices, along with grassroots advocacy training, all culminating with Monday’s Lobby Day on Capitol Hill.

This high impact weekend, sponsored by the ecumenical Christian community, is grounded in biblical witness and our shared traditions of justice, peace and integrity of creation. Our goal is to strengthen our Christian voice and mobilize for advocacy on a wide variety of U.S. domestic and international policy issues.
UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries, Wider Church Ministries and the Disciples of Christ have been instrumental in planning this weekend. Our staff will be there to host workshops and support you in your advocacy. Join us as we work together to make a better world possible!
