I’ll be attending the Justice Conference again this year on June 3-4 in Chicago. The Justice Conference is presented by World Relief, an international development and relief organization founded as the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals.
I attended the conference last year and left truly inspired. Of course, big conferences alone cannot solve systemic injustices of racism, poverty, and slavery. The work takes work. But conferences can spark movement and inspire ideas.
If you’re interested, you can check out videos of previous conferences. Past speakers include N.T. Wright, Noel Castellanos, Lynne Hybels, and Shane Claiborne. I particularly want to highlight the talk by Bryan Stevenson, the founder and director of Equal Justice Initiative, who speaks about how faith animates his work in representing people on death row. Last year also featured musical performances by David Crowder and Rend Collective.
