Young Adult Advocacy Conference, Louisville, KY, October 20-22, 2023

The Washington Office of Public Witness and Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations are having a young adult advocacy conference for college students, seminarians and young adults on October 20-22, 2023. The cost is free for all participants and is open to young adults from any faith tradition.

The Jesus & Justice Advocacy Conference will be Oct. 20-22 at the Presbyterian Center, near Waterfront Park, and will be replicated across the country over the next few years. The first one is mainly intended for people who live in the region and are within driving distance to Louisville, but there also will be ways to participate in some sessions remotely.

“A primary goal is to connect with young adults who are interested in justice advocacy, especially those who want to engage from a faith perspective,” said the Rev. Jimmie Hawkins, who leads the Presbyterian Office of Public Witness and the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations. “There are those who want to do more, to make a difference, but are unsure how to begin and the intricacies of networking and coalition building.”
