Ecumenical Advocacy Days is a movement of the ecumenical Christian community and its recognized partners and allies to strengthen our Christian voice and to mobilize for advocacy on important policy issues.
This year's theme, "At God's Table," explores injustices in global food systems that leave one billion people hungry, create food price shocks that destabilize communities everywhere, and undermine God's creation. 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 and Luke 14:12-24).
Join ELCA members and other Christians at the 2013 event in Crystal City, Va., and Washington, D.C., where participants will worship side-by-side, hear from theologians and policy experts, be equipped to speak confidently on related policy issues, and urge members of Congress to pass strong food policy that serves the most vulnerable.
