Register for February’s Justice Conference
By Jared Noetzel
The Justice Conference is just over a month away, and here at Bread for the World we’re getting excited! Every year at The Justice Conference hundreds of justice seekers gather to listen, learn, and take action to pursue justice. This year, the conference will host a stellar line-up of speakers, from N.T. Wright and Jim Wallis to Richard Stearns and Dr. Bernice A. King. These and so many other folks have spent countless years struggling to seek the Kingdom of God and see even some small part of it realized among us in the here and now. I’m proud to be joining this movement of committed Christ followers Feb. 21-22 at the Orpheum theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
If you haven’t registered for the main event yet, take a minute to do it now! While you’re at the conference, be sure to stop by Bread’s exhibitor booth or join us for our pre-conference workshop titled Voices that Challenge Injustice: Food Aid, led by Krisanne Vaillancourt-Murphy, interim director of church relations at Bread for the World.
If you’re looking for a reason to spend a bit more time in L.A., then stick around on Sunday, June 23 for The Justice Conference Film Festival. Bread for the World will be participating, and the award-winning film “A Place at the Table” will be featured. You can get your tickets here.
This year, as we gather in L.A. for the main event, thousands more will come together at venues around the country to experience a simulcast of the L.A. main stage events. Justice Conference partner sites represent a unique opportunity for long-time activists and the newly inducted to gather to learn and grow together.
We would love to keep you up to date on The Justice Conference and so much more! You can do that by following us on Twitter, liking our page on Facebook, or checking back here for the latest blog posts. While you’re at it, you can let your decision makers know where you stand by writing them a quick email. We firmly believe that pursing justice requires faithful advocacy, so thanks for standing up and speaking out!
