The Soul of the Activist Conference
Warren Wilson College
9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

The work of activists — of citizens engaged in creating positive change — can be both rewarding and tiresome, life-giving and heart-breaking. What drives us towards (or calls us into) activism? How do we sustain ourselves and one another in the work for positive change? Might there be a spirituality of activism, and if so what does it look like? The Soul of the Activist Conference seeks to bring agents of change new to the work of justice-making and peace-building into conversation with those who have been in the work for decades. Please register online.
