As you prepare to attend a conference this year or assist another advocate to go this year or next, consider these encouraging facts about the growth of our Advocates International (AI) movement since 1991:

    23,000+ people have attended conferences or other gatherings organized, funded or co-sponsored by AI regional networks or national affiliates, including: 

    • 5,800 delegates attending 40 regional and sub-regional conferences in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Balkans, Middle East, and Caribbean.
    • 1,200 delegates attending five Global Convocations in the USA since 1998, joined by 2,000 Christian Legal Society/USA members and friends.
    • 3,900 justices, judges and magistrates have participating in 32 judicial conferences or seminars.
    • 7,000 lawyers, judges, clergy, students, business leaders and government officials have participating in 100+ meetings other than the global, regional or judicial conferences.

For the sake of our doing together the justice with compassion commended by our LORD (Matt 23:23, Micah 6:8), let's keep meeting together to encourage one another in the love and good works that we are being called by our love of God and neighbor to do.
