Hearts FOR JUSTICE 2017 DATE TBD
About Hearts for Justice
In 2014 Trinity began hosting a yearly justice conference. The goal of this conference is to create educational opportunties both within our church community and the broader community around important justice issues.
2016: Hearts for Justice: Addiction, Recovery, and Grace
In 2016 we focused our conversation on addiction and recovery in our communities and churches. We welcomed Fr. Tom Weston and The Rt. Rev. Chilton Knudsen as our guest speakers. They shared their experience and their work in 12 step programs. The 2016 conference was recorded, and you can view the entire conference here. Bishop Chilton was also our guest preacher on October 23, 2016 and you can find that recording on our sermon page here.
2015: Hearts for Justice : Incarceration in our Community
In 2015, we learned about incarceration and restorative justice in the Bay Area and beyond. This event featured a panel of local experts and dozens of organizations working to prevent incarceration, reach out to inmates, and support those re-entering our community.
2014 Hearts for Justice: Coming Together to Confront Violence Against Women
In 2014 we focused a spotlight on the trafficking of women and girls, which takes place not only across the world but across the streets ofour own communities. An expert panel of presenters who are renowned practitioners as well as social entrepreneurs and authors, guided us through a conversation identifying causes, addressing the healing needs of survivors and highlighted solutions for ending this modern day slavery. We welcomed Rev. Becca Stevens the founder of Thistle Farms, Dave Batstone the founder of Not For Sale, and Carissa Phelps the founder of Runaway Girl FPC, as our expert panel. Each foundation works in advocacy, prevention, and rehabilitation for survivors of human trafficking. Along with sharing the work of their organizations, our panel will be sharing their own personal stories, educating our community, and inspire hope and healing.
