NCCC TO HOST NATIONAL YOUNG ADULT CONFERENCE ON ENVIRONMENT
The Brethren Witness/Washington Office would like to invite persons 18-39 to this year’s Young Adult Environmental Justice Conference, May 20, 21, and 22. Sponsored by the National Council of Churches in Christ, the intent of the gathering is to equip emerging leaders with the skills to address environmental justice issues in their faith communities. As the 1991 Annual Conference Called to Care statement reveals, “Our task is nothing less than to join God in preserving, renewing and fulfilling the creation.” The event will take place in Atlanta’s Interdenominational Theological Center and will give participants the opportunity to work with impacted communities. The conference will offer plenaries, workshops including greening congregations, messaging and organizing, as well as providing time for fellowship and networking. The registration fee, which includes food and lodging, is $185 by May 1, and $205 thereafter. Those interested in attending should contact Cassandra Carmichael at Cassandra@toad.net, or at 202-544-2350, ext. 27.
