The Justice Conference
Looking for a way to increase your impact in the fight against trafficking this year? Consider attending The Justice Conference next month in Philadelphia (early-bird pricing ends soon). Click here to find out who’s speaking this year—we’re particularly excited about Gary Haugen of IJM and Sheryl WuDunn coauthor of Half the Sky. Here’s more from their site:
The Justice Conference is a two-day annual event to promote dialogue around justice related issues such as human trafficking, slavery, poverty, HIV/AIDS and human rights, featuring internationally acclaimed speakers, hundreds of humanitarian organizations and dozens of pre-conference workshops.
Ken Wytsma founded The Justice Conference in 2010 with a group of like-minded friends in Bend, Oregon, who dreamed of impacting a generation for justice.
World Relief and Kilns College joined as the convening organizations and since then, The Justice Conference has grown to become one of the largest international gatherings on social and biblical justice. The vision of the conference is to reach tens of thousands of people over the next decade through an annual gathering that educates, inspires and connects a generation to a shared concern for the vulnerable and oppressed. This is motivated by the driving value of the conference, what Ken calls a theology of justice, that an understanding of God should compel love for others and engagement in justice.
The Justice Conference is a movement of students, teachers, business people, parents, artists, social entrepreneurs, pastors, advocates and academics all of whom are discovering the paradox that true life is found when we give our lives away on behalf of others.
