Streams of Justice is your opportunity to delve deeper into the social justice commitments that are close to your heart, in the company of others equally committed to working for positive change. This three-day event, open to all, will build the Atlantic ecumenical social justice movement, increasing participation, diversity, effectiveness and commitment.

Location overview:  Streams of Justice, the KAIROS Atlantic Gathering for 2019 will be held at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick on the unceded and ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq.

Everyone is welcome. Streams of Justice will bring together experienced and aspiring grassroots activists (all newbies welcome!) from across the Atlantic.

This is an intergenerational Gathering. That means that we aim to have half of the 200 participants be young adults (18-35). While those younger than 18 are welcome to attend, KAIROS asks that they be accompanied by an adult who will act as a guardian. Families are welcome, and childcare will be available for main sessions with advance registration.

This is an ecumenical Gathering and all people are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation or no affiliation. A focussed theological component will be offered as a pre-conference event and in the workshop times.

Gathering registration includes programming, accommodations and meals for three (3) days from Thursday supper, May 2nd to Sunday lunch, May 5th.
