The gathering will also be an opportunity for attendees to meet with their members of congress and talk to them about the war. Friends Committee on National Legislation, Christian Peace Witness, Ecumenical Advocacy Days, and AFSC have partnered up to offer a workshop on talking with congress about the war. You can register for the event through CPWI’s website. If you would like to participate in additional lobby sessions offered by EAD, register for their events here.
