From the Episcopal Peace Fellowship: Young Adult Delegation

The Episcopal Peace Fellowship is excited to announce the Young Adult Delegation to General Convention 2018. Since 2006, EPF has had an active young adult presence at convention, calling the church to love in word in action, and advocating about issues of justice and peace. During this General Convention, delegates will be advocating around gun control, refugees, immigration, police brutality, trans inclusion and other gender and sexuality issues, healthcare, education, and Israel/Palestine relations, among other issues.
