The idea of releasing persons or nations from unbearable debt is an important concept. To this end, please be aware of a local conference (for Oklahomans) that will educate - and perhaps inspire - toward greater understanding.
You are invited to join Jubilee USA Network for a day of inspiring speakers, educational workshops, and advocacy training sessions on international debt relief as a tool to fight global poverty. The conference will feature a leading African civil society advocate along with national and local experts and advocates on global hunger and poverty issues.
The conference will explore the potential of debt relief to fight poverty in poor countries, and the biblical Jubilee call for debt cancellation and right relationships among peoples and nations. The conference will also include skill-building workshops on effective advocacy and building a global justice ministry in your church or community. Join us to broaden your understanding of our place in the world’s global village!
When: October 24, 2009
