Join advocates and people of faith from across Colorado for this annual event! This year, we focus on the future of the church’s public witness and reclaiming Martin Luther’s legacy of activism and protest on the cusp of the Reformation’s 500th anniversary. What does it mean for us to be a "Protest"-ant church today? Join us for a great day of learning and action!

We welcome keynote speaker Rev. Amy Reumann, Director of Advocacy in the ELCA Washington D.C. Office.
