Ending Mass Incarceration Conference

Monday, June 17 2019 to Wednesday, June 19 2019

There's only one week left to get half-price registration for what promises to be a  life-changing event.
The Let My People Go conference June 17-19 in Atlanta at Ebenezer Baptist Church is a national convening leveraging the spiritual power, people power and resources of faith communities toward the effort to end mass incarceration. 

Over the three days, you will learn from some of the premiere thought leaders in the work of faith-based criminal justice reform. Dynamic plenaries, workshops, panels and films will offer you resources to effectively engage in the fight against the rise of the prison industrial complex. Specifically, you will learn how your faith community can effectively use events like bail-outs and record expungement as tools for faith-based criminal justice system activism.

Please register now. If you can't make it, please share this opportunity with your colleagues and friends.

Dear Sisters in Christ,

The ELCA which will be held September 20-22, 2019 at Music Road Resort in Pigeon Forge, TN. 
 
You will find the following information concerning the convention

  • Voting Member Responsibilities
  • Nomination Form
Please encourage the women in your unit to attend the convention and extend a personal invitation to the young women (ages 14-40).  You may make as many copies as you need of the Registration Form and the Convention Poster to share with the women in your congregational unit. 
 
We have five $100 scholarships available and two $100 scholarships for young women (14-40).  Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to apply is July 1, 2019. Please contact Patti Austin at paustin562@att.net  for a scholarship application.

Also attached is the information for your voting member to the convention.  Each congregational or special unit of the Southeastern Synod Women of the ELCA is entitled to one voting member.  It is very important that all congregations be represented as we conduct the business of our organization.
 
We will be electing a vice-president, secretary, and three board members this year.  A form is attached to submit nominations for these positions.  Please prayerfully consider serving our organization in this capacity but remember that only one person from a congregation may serve on the board at a time.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the board members.
 
I look forward to seeing you in September!
 
Embracing God’s Grace,

Patti Austin
