WHEN: January 25-28, 2020
HOSTED BY: United States Catholic Conference of Bishops
**Standard Registration Ends December 16, 2019**
Connect with current and emerging leaders working to witness to life and justice in their communities. The Gathering will be an important collaborative opportunity to bring together colleagues who work on issues impacting life and human dignity across the spectrum such as the death penalty, human trafficking, restorative justice, and issues impacting families such as migration, violence, and poverty.
Dynamic and thought-provoking plenary presentations, briefings, and workshops awaken you to how we as a Church are called to dialogue and witness to unity as we work together towards the common good. Then, raise your voice in advocacy with members of Congress.
