Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World, the World Council of Churches, and Howard University Office of the Dean of the Chapel are hosting a consultation of Pan-African women of faith from across the world. The goal of the consultation is to ensure that hunger and poverty are on the platforms of candidates aspiring to public office this year in the U.S., Africa, and the Caribbean.
Pan-African women are disproportionately affected by hunger and poverty, and the hope of the consultation is to raise and consolidate support among the women to respond to the injustices and disparities in their local and global communities. The event will:
affirm the leadership provided by Pan-African women to address hunger and poverty,
highlight the important role Pan-African women of faith have and can play in advocacy and elections, and
inform the collective efforts to ensure that specific issues facing Pan-African women and girls are understood and considered by decision makers.
On Friday, June 10, participants will also take part in the Pan-African Spiritual Pilgrimage: A Sacred Journey of Lament, Celebration, and Hope to significant sites around Washington, D.C.

The United States has long been a global leader in responding to humanitarian emergencies. Food assistance that includes nutritious food for pregnant women and young children is both a life-and-death matter for individuals and an economic imperative for countries.
