Overview of Advocates
 
As part of our continuation of AI's look back. We have compiled a list of events over the past 18 years that summarizes the essence and totality of Advocates' efforts around the world. Highlights among them include:
    • 7,000 lawyers, judges, clergy, students, business leaders and government officials have participated in 100+ meetings other than the global, regional or judicial conferences
    • 22,000+ people have attended conferences or other gatherings since 1991 organized, funded or co-sponsored by AI, its regional networks or national affiliates.
    • At the 5th Global Convocation in 2008 with 1,000 conferees, AI launched seven Global Task Forces to oversee: 1) Religious Freedom; 2) Peace & Reconciliation; 3) Family & Community; 4) Sanctity of Human Life; 5) Rule of Law with Integrity; 6) Human Rights & Justice for the Poor; and 7) Global Prayer. It seeks to collaborate globally with those of like mind and sacrificial commitment.

Training, Mentoring, and Doing Justice with Compassion
1991-2009
 
Training and mentoring the legal profession, and "doing justice with compassion", are at the core of Advocates International's mission. It challenges all advocates to bear witness of Jesus Christ wherever they may be. The linked list is a compilation of what I believe to be the most important events AI has been involved in over the past two decades. Each one unique in its own way and all capable of having books written about them. These events are the evidence and testaments to the afore mentioned core of AI. Please read over and thank God for each of these events and their power, as well as those to come. (more...)
