Ecumenical Advocacy Days
April 18 - April 21
Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD), happening April 18-21, is especially accessible (and affordable!) in 2021 because the National Gathering and Lobby Day is virtual. EAD has been meaningful for many Lutherans who take the advocacy opportunity and bring back the skills to multiple contexts.
#EAD2021, with the theme: “God’s Earth and People Restored,” is a time of process and issue learning, worship, as well as Capitol Hill virtual visits with policymakers on climate impacts due to historic racial and colonial inequities. In addition to being a sponsor, leaders from ELCA advocacy staff will present workshops at this event.

- Scholarships for young adults (age 18-35) affiliated with ELCA congregations and ministries are available! Contact email@example.com for promo code.
- Early-bird rate available until April 8 (extended).
- Networking opportunity for Lutheran participants planned.
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of The Episcopal Church is scheduled to preach at the opening worship service, launching those new and experienced in advocacy toward centered, invigorating EAD offerings and experiences.
