Pre-Summit: Prophetic Advocacy
Join Sojourners staff and leadership for a morning of prophetic advocacy: creating systemic change by meeting with elected officials. We’ll begin with breakfast and policy briefings at the Sojourners office in Capitol Hill, followed by a session at the nearby congressional buildings with senators and representatives. Then we’ll make individual visits to members of Congress to share our vision for a just and equitable future. In addition to these visits coordinated by Sojourners, attendees are encouraged to schedule their own meetings with elected officials for efforts related to their area of interest.

Forums
Trainings: These gatherings feature practical issue based and field-based skills development with some of the best skill-builders available.


Salons: In order to sharpen the group’s thinking about the intersections and implications of resistance and healing, thoughtful cross-sector practitioners kick off salon conversations with a particular topic and then open it up to the rest of the group.


Convenings: While many connections will be made informally throughout the event, we have scheduled convenings to provide formal spaces for affinity groups to network and engage in movement building. During these convenings, participants will engage in dialogue that leads to common commitments or coordinated action; connect with leaders in a particular sector or field of interest; and identify challenges, map assets, and develop action plans.
Convenings will tackle key questions confronting different parts of the movement, including: What are the core challenges or needs among your justice stream? What are the assets and connections around the room? What can our organizations bring to this work? What can we do as individuals?”

Core Conversation #1: CENTER
Fifty years ago, in another time of deep conflict, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. asked: “Where do we go from here: chaos or community?” Movement through chaos and towards community requires a renewal of our roots and identity. The word “radical” comes from the Latin word “radix” which means “root,” so a radical faith literally requires us to address the fundamental nature of things—to create change from the core. To be rooted in radical discipleship is to participate in a movement of justice and peace, as taught and lived in the life of Jesus. This Core Conversation will examine how our identity as radically rooted people calls us to intervene in our current moment.

Core Conversation #2: CULTIVATE
In the absence of justice, those who believe in freedom cannot rest. But paradoxically, without rest—and spiritual sustenance—our movements can suffer from corrosive cynicism. When many of us exist in a perpetual state of fear, anxiety, and moral outrage, how do we avoid becoming well-intentioned but disillusioned activists? How do we nurture hope that is stronger than the winds that shake us? In this Core Conversation, we will discuss how to be leaders who cultivate spiritual resilience—not only for ourselves, but for all.

Core Conversation #3: EMPOWER
We are guided by a great cloud of witnesses, but we face our own unique moment in history. Living out a call to protect vulnerable people forces us into the creative tension between power and powerlessness. What is the appropriate use of power in this time? What strategies and energies are needed for a new civil resistance movement? Featuring perspectives from different movements, this Core Conversation will explore our understanding of power and strategy.

Core Conversation #4: CREATE & Blessing Ceremony
What does prophetic imagination mean today? Our present civic dysfunction has imposed new barriers on some and provided a wake-up call to others, yet transformative possibilities exist. What does prophetic ministry look like, not just in our biblical traditions, but in response to this moment? Faithful engagement manifests in both the now and the not yet—imagining a future beyond our fragmented reality. This final Core Conversation will examine the meaning of the prophetic vocation today and how it guides our way forward.
