This is a call of action for people of faith to come together and talk about the calling of the church to support families, mothers, fathers, daughters, and sons facing issues of poverty, racism and discrimination, and injustice.

By attending this retreat you will gain greater awareness of how our denomination is responding to issues of justice in global, national, and local context. You will also learn strategies to mobilize Presbyterians as a whole around justice advocacy.
