The World Student Christian Federation North America and the Steering Committee of the Student Christian Movement USA invite students to attend "Overcoming Violence: Encountering the Past, Engaging the Present, Empowering the Future," October 8-11, 2010, at Morehouse College, Atlanta, GA.

Student representatives from seminaries, colleges, universities and from the current chapters of the SCM USA across the country will come together to discuss how they will collectively put their faith into action toward progressive Christian concerns. SCM USA will provide the coordination of ecumenical student activities in the U.S. and subsequently connect U.S. students to the rest of the World Student Christian Federation.
