Story by LaTasha Hewitt
The Allegheny East Conference (AEC) will be hosting this year’s Conscience and Justice Council (CJC) convention, themed “When the Church Comes to Town: Promoting Liberty, Pursing Justice,” Sept. 28–Oct. 1, at the North American Division headquarters in Columbia, Md.
CJC is an annual gathering comprised of Public Affairs and Religious Liberty regional conference directors, college professors and other supporters. The purpose of the conference is to highlight ways church members can get involved in social justice issues.
“Social justice is the new community service,” shares Jackson M. Doggette, Jr., General Counsel and Public Affairs and Religious Liberty director for AEC, “and this appeals to the younger generation. We need everyone to be involved so people can see our love and concern to help them enjoy a better life.”
