This is the second year the Episcopal Church Center will sponsor a young adult delegation to join Anglican Women's Empowerment and Ecumenical Women at the UN in participating in the Commission on the Status of Women. Building on the powerful work of the Office for Women's Ministries under Kim Robey, Jason Sierra, Associate for Young Adult and Campus Ministries and Karen Longenecker, UCSD graduate student and former delegate, will lead ten young adults in experiencing, exploring, and fully participating in this year's CSW.
The delegation begins its work this winter with a series of conference calls, the resources for which will be posted on this site under "Learn More." We invite you to join us in exploring and engaging in the amazing work the UN is already doing around Women's Rights and Gender Justice.
During the CSW and in the weeks leading up to it, this page will be populated with blog posts, photos and videos documenting the delegation's experiences and inviting the participation of family, friends, home congregations and all in the church who are interested in what a future generation of Episcopal leaders see to be a more just future for all people.
For now we invite you to read these responses to the CSW from last year's delegation:
