Coming in February: The Justice Conference
By Krisanne Vaillancourt Murphy
“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?”
Does your church or campus community want to share God’s concern for poor and hungry people? Seek inspiration for the long haul of its social justice journey? Desire to connect with a national, biblically-grounded rising of teachers, business people, artists, stay-at-home moms, and others who have a passion for justice?
For the past three years, Bread for the World has been a sponsor of The Justice Conference, an annual national gathering that educates, inspires, and connects a generation of men and women around a shared concern for biblical and social justice, and the vulnerable and oppressed.
In February, Bread for the World will again bring its proven Christian legislative advocacy experience to the conference, and look to find new ways to collaborate around addressing global hunger and poverty.
Here’s how your faith community can get involved with this year's Justice Conference, which will take place Feb. 21 to 23 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles:
- Visit Bread for the World’s exhibit and attend its pre-conference workshops on Feb. 21 and 22.
- Become a host site, so that more voices will join this important movement.
- Register to attend a regional Justice Conference host site near you.
- Plan to attend the main conference in Los Angeles.
- Come to the Justice Conference Film Festival on Feb. 23.
If you, or your church, are participating in this year’s conference, either attending or serving as a host site, please let us know—we’d like to connect with you. To learn more about this year's conference, watch the conference promotional video, featuring poet Micah Bournes, below.
