Presented by the Trinity Institute for Leadership & Social Justice, The Micah Conference is a high school student-led conference that focuses on empowering youth to create social change in their communities. We take our name from the prophet Micah, who urged God’s people: “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8). Our view on social justice is restorative, transformative, and based in Christian theology. This means that we focus not only on community service projects, but also on discussing what social justice really is and how we can create long-lasting transformation. By featuring a diverse set of speakers, both local and national, and a variety of interactive workshops, attendees will be exposed to a broad range of current social issues and their potential solutions. In this way, the Conference is structured to engender a desire for justice, a love for mercy, and reliance on our God.
