Our friend Trisha Famisaran has been working very hard organizing a revolutionary April 24-26 conference entitled:
“Adventist Women & the Earth…a Response to Ecofeminism”
This conference aims to address our responsibility to the earth/environment and to explore connections with gender justice. Ecofeminists have demonstrated how throughout history women have been treated similarly to the earth. We hope to lead out and show how young Adventist women care about the abuse of the earth and women; and challenge others not only to recognize this problem but to actively create and practice solutions that respect the dignity and value of God’s creations. The main topic will be addressed utilizing discussions on leadership, practical solutions, dialogue on the parallels between our ethic toward the environment and women, and so forth.
The keynote speaker is Rosemary Radford Ruether.
Also presenting: John B. Cobb, Jr., Jared Wright, Maritza Duran, Ginger Hanks-Harwood, Somer Penington, and more.
