This will be our first Advocacy Camp – but we’ve been training advocates for years! Here’s what others have to say about advocacy events with World Vision:
» “It was a tremendous learning experience for me. I got to see just how indispensable our country is in bringing about global change. It also helped me see how indispensable my personal influence is.” – MyRon from Cleveland, OH
» “This trip made the political process more accessible to me. The best part was being part of a group of like-minded people who shared a passion and even a calling to work toward justice, especially for the poor in other countries. [We can’t] underestimate the privilege and power that we have as American citizens. We have a responsibility to let our leaders know that we care about others around the globe.” – Ruthi from Fullerton, CA
» "As anyone knows who has attended a conference or gathering with World Vision staff, the time together will be extremely well spent being educated and encouraged. The congressional visits are empowering to see how effective in-person meetings can be, but also meeting other Christians in one's region who have a calling to speak out for the 'least' is both gratifying and fun! I would highly recommend the experience." – Denise from Charlotte, NC
