2011 WCC Peace Convocation

The World Councel of Churches began the Decade to Overcome Violence in 2001. The International Ecumenical Peace Convocation on 17 - 25 May 2011 in Kingston, Jamaica will be a "harvest festival" celebrating the achievements.

Out of 200 workshops only one concentrates on homophobic violence. It is held by four people from the European Forum.

The worskhop helps to identify and analyze homophobic violence in churches worldwide and gives practical examples of what to do against it. They will report from Jamaica in this blog.
