We are called to share God’s love with the world, by being God’s hands in the world. We answer God’s call to “do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).
Presbyterian Women in the Congregation, Presbytery and Synod groups respond to local or regional justice and peace needs. Our work can be action, advocacy or awareness-building—or a mixture depending on the gifts of our groups. In addition to local and regional emphases, Presbyterian Women Churchwide suggests addressing the injustices of
• Mass incarceration
• Human trafficking
• Quality education
• Informed advocacy through
• The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and
• Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD)
Apply by November 15, 2017 to join the Presbyterian delegation to the 62nd CSW in 2018. And mark your calendars for Ecumenical Advocacy Days in 2018: April 20–23.
The 2018 Justice and Peace Calendar outlines dates and areas of emphasis to guide your advocacy throughout the year.
Together in Action Days
While Presbyterian Women works for justice and peace on many issues in many ways, Together in Action days are opportunities for Presbyterian Women across the country to address two specific justice issues in their local contexts. Learn more about
• Together in Action against human trafficking (January) and
