In 2019, Hearing the Cries for Justice is coming to a region near you…
… with your help! We are recruiting local hosts in regions outside the Portland metro area to host a day of networking and learning, focused on stories and skills for effective criminal justice ministries. The program will include training in advocacy and mentorship, with a focus on the stories of people living in your area.
We are currently recruiting host groups to host the event and provide logistical organizing. We hope to visit regions outside the Portland metro area, but we need volunteer hosts to help us make this happen! Let us know if you’d like to host a visit from EMO to your region, to talk about justice!
