ACT was honoured to be part of the LWF Assembly in Windhoek, Namibia. The Assembly was a vibrant gathering of Lutherans from over 100 countries around the world, and spent significant time focusing on climate justice, refugees, and inequalities through its sub-themes of Creation: Not for Sale and Human Beings: Not for Sale. ACT members spoke, presented workshops, provided displays, and gathered together to dialogue and share during the days of the Assembly.
ACT’s General Secretary, John Nduna, highlighted the strength of the LWF and its members’ work through ACT: “Together we have a voice at the table, we respond to disasters, and we learn and share in development practice,” Nduna told the almost 800 people gathered at the Assembly. He highlighted the LWF’s role as one of the global leaders in working with refugees and displaced people, and also in standing with affected people and communities in the fight for climate justice.
