2020 Virtual Advocacy Summit: Our Faith, Our Future

Monday, June 8 – Tuesday, June 9

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Bread for the World has decided to move this year’s Advocacy Summit completely online.

Bread members from around the country will gather virtually to participate in worship, advocacy-focused workshops, learn up-to-date legislative priorities and virtually lobby Congress on hunger and poverty.

To be certain, this year’s Advocacy Summit will look different than previous in-person gatherings held in Washington, D.C. But its importance won’t be. More than ever, we will need your voice to ensure that the most vulnerable here in the United States and abroad receive the nutrition they need to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

This webpage will be updated as the Advocacy Summit schedule is finalized, and guest speakers confirmed. Please come back often to check on what is new.

"For I know the plans I have for you … to give you a future with hope."

Jeremiah 29:11
