The Advocacy Days 2003 was an ecumenical gathering in Washington, DC, that began Sunday, February 23, and ended Wednesday afternoon, February 26. 

The gathering offered two learning/advocacy tracks, one focused on Africa and the other on the Middle East. Both tracks provided challenging speakers, issue briefings, and advocacy training workshops. There were opportunities for participants to speak with their Senators and Representatives in the U.S. Congress, or their key foreign policy staff, regarding Africa or the Middle East. There were also common times for fellowship and networking, keynote addresses in each track, and a Capitol Hill reception.
