Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD)
The World Student Christian Federation -North America (WSCF-NA) is one of the proud sponsors of Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD). Last year, a group of SCM USA students gathered as a delegation along with other young adults to discuss, discern, and network. Local seminarian, Desiree' Kameka, even served on the committee for worship and said, "Working with the EAD staff and volunteers was so inspiring as they didn't just care about creating an inclusive and creative environment for worship, but they cared about me and how I was doing! It was a great learning opportunity to see so much time, thought, intention and energy put into a service for worship."
The World Student Christian Federation -North America (WSCF-NA) is one of the proud sponsors of Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD). Like in previous years, we would like to have a Student Christian Movement (SCM) USA/WSCF-NA delegation there. The WSCF will also participate in planning the young adults track at EAD and scholarships are available for young adults (35 and younger) to attend the event. If you are interested in participating in EAD or in obtaining a scholarship please let Shantha Ready (email@example.com) and/or I know.
This is an amazing opportunity to meet and network with other justice minded people, to learn advocacy skills and to actually advocate first-hand on Capitol Hill on issues of economic justice! This year the EAD will explore economy, livelihood and the USA's national priorities through the lens of Isaiah 58. Join other Christians in seeking a global economy and a budget that break the yokes of injustice, poverty, hunger and unemployment throughout the world — heeding Isaiah's call to become "repairers of the breach and restorers of streets to live in." Visit their website and Facebook page to learn more and apply for a scholarship to attend!
