What is Ecumenical Advocacy Days?

 Ecumenical Advocacy Days is an annual gathering of Christian advocates and activists. EAD 2022 WILL BE A VIRTUAL GATHERING HELD ON APRIL 25-27, 2022. We worship, delve deeply into the pressing issues of the day, and lift our voices by speaking truth to power on Capitol Hill. The theme for EAD 2022, “Fierce Urgency: Advancing Civil & Human Rights,” calls us into solidarity to restore, protect, and expand voting rights in the United States and to realize human rights around the world. As people of faith, we know each person to be created in God’s image, imbued with dignity and having a voice that demands to be heard, heeded, and treated justly.
