On Wednesday July 13, 2022 our Public Relations and Religious Liberty department joined with our Youth & Young Adult Ministries to visit the U.S. Capitol. They were able to meet Congressman Hakeem Jeffries as well as visit some historical sites. The goal of the trip was to submit a letter to Congress on behalf of the Northeastern Conference and our stand against gun violence. This letter was one of the first Adventist documents officially submitted into congressional record. The trip was led by Dr. Allen Martin (PARL Director) and Dr. Paula Olivier (Youth & Young Adult Ministries Director).
