Join Jim Wallis in Washington, DC - June 26-28
Join Rev. Jim Wallis and hundreds of faith leaders for Pentecost 2006:
Building a Covenant for a New America.

In Washington, expensive consultants get paid a lot of money to explain
to political groups how to launch a new campaign - from the most
high-powered speakers to the most eye-popping color schemes.

For our next major campaign at Sojourners and Call to Renewal, we're
not turning to consultants. We're turning to you.

We officially invite you to come to Washington, D.C., June 26-28, 2006,
to help us and our partners launch our next major initiative: The
Covenant for a New America. The covenant is a bold, solutions-based
anti-poverty vision and platform that transcends ideology. We hope
you'll join us in Washington to deliver this covenant - a promise of
hope and justice - to your legislators on Capitol Hill, and then learn
how to build this promise of hope in your community back home.

Faith Voices for the Common Good
The Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) is holding an
unprecedented online convening of women, where we will write a statement
on women's vision for public life--and how we might live it out in
policymaking and practice.
The event is sponsored by IWPR's project on Politics, Religion, and
Women's Public Vision, which is raising the visibility of women's values
for public life and building networks among women in religious movements
for social justice and women's movement organizing. By participating,
you will help us develop a statement and policy agenda that seeks to
advance women's values in American public life.

There are two opportunities to participate:
May 15, 2006, 4 pm to 6 pm EST (East Coast time)
May 18, 2006, 4 pm to 6 pm PST (West Coast time)

Please register by Wednesday, May 10th.
