SheLeads Summit 2018: ChurchTogether
November 10, 2018 - November 10, 2018

From the event website:

"The world has an old, painful story about men and women. This year the #metoo moment brought to light some of the most disturbing parts of the story and the #churchtoo moment forced us to confront how much the brokenness of the world has entered the Church. This broken story is deeply painful on a personal and communal level.

It’s easy to believe we’ll never overcome the brokenness.

But this is not how God sees our story.

It’s time to name and lament how the world’s story has limited the Church’s imagination. And it’s also time to tell a better story. God is weaving a restoration project in us as individuals and as a body. It will give us a better story to tell the world.

On November 10 we’re gathering folks who both know the brokenness and have better stories to tell. Won’t you join us to hear their stories and share your own?"

From the event website:

"You are invited to apply for the #RubyWooPilgrimage—a sacred journey through the intersectional story of the struggle of women for equality in the U.S. This pilgrimage is being carefully curated to bring together a diverse group of women committed to journeying together.

Imagine​ boarding a bus with a​ ​diverse​ ​group​ ​of​ ​about​ ​40​ fabulous ​women​ to​ ​embark​ ​on​ ​a​ ​three-day journey through the intersectional struggle of women for equality in the U.S.

Imagine walking on the land where women clasped hands in the past and took bold steps forward toward their own and each other’s freedom.

Imagine sharing your heart and listening to the hearts of other women; thriving, struggling, nurturing, challenging, facing down, standing up, holding on, and running forward.

Imagine walking through the halls of Congress in lock-step—red lips blazing—prepared to speak truth to power.

​The ​​#​RUBYWOO​pilgrimage is back!

EFOGE Conference in Uganda
September 16, 2018 - September 16, 2018

Ekklesia Foundation for Gender Education (EFOGE) will hold its 2018 international conference in Kampala, Uganda. EFOGE is an organization of Christians passionate about justice and equality for women and men, girls and boys.

While studies indicate steady growth of the church in the sub-Saharan Africa, they also shockingly reveal high levels of inequality. Many women are still isolated from leadership and decision-making platforms both in church and society. Domestic violence is on the rise while female genital mutilation is widely and secretly practiced against the law, in silence.

Although churches are among the most powerful agents of social change, the fact is that many churches in the region are still rooted in patriarchal traditions which oppose ideas of women leadership and equality. The Bible is often interpreted to teach male leadership and authority which always sidelines and denies women equal opportunity in decision-making processes.

With delegates and faith leaders from sub-Saharan Africa and around the world, this conference invites honest conversation to explore faith and the biblical foundation for equality and justice for women and men in the church and society. This conference aims to equip and empower faith leaders to be strong advocates for equality and justice for women and men in order to end the root causes of poverty and the rampant cases of sexual and gender-based violence in the region.

Join us in Kampala, Uganda this summer and connect with Christians from around the globe, learn how to advocate for equality in your own culture, church and society, and how to be a catalyst for change.

Greater DC Chapter: Dance for our Sisters Zumbathon
August 04, 2018 - August 04, 2018

From the Greater DC webpage:

"Come have a blast with us at this special event where you can get a great Zumba workout, have fun, AND help end gender-based violence all at once!

But, how does spending my Saturday doing Zumba with my friends help women in Africa???

We are proud to donate the proceeds to CBE International for their initiative in collaborating with churches & NGO leaders in Africa who have a track record of challenging gender-based violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation, and other injustices suffered by women. Misunderstanding of scripture fuels gender-based violence, so CBE is helping to tell the story of the truth in God's word of equality.

CBE is expanding outreach alongside pastors in Cameroon, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and beyond. In fact, CBE will invest over $48,000 and countless staff hours in these vital programs. But they need our help today. Your participation or donation will support this transformative work with a generous contribution toward books, scholarships, and general ministry needs."
