“What’s Your Price” How much does it cost for you life to be changed? We believe that the price of our lives is Jesus. He came not so that we would have life on the other side, but live an abundant life here on Earth!
What does that mean practically in our every day lives? What exactly is Jesus inviting us into if He paid a price? Come get answers to those questions and more as Jonathan Walton visits Baruch’s Large group on May 9.
*Note: this event is only open to Baruch College students. If you are NOT a student and would like to attend, please email email@example.com.

Will you join Oxfam America, Slow Food, and two Ghanaian cocoa farmers here in NYC on May 2nd? The farmers, Mr. Kwesi Boateng Afriyie and Ms. Christiana Adusei, will be on a nationwide tour of the US with Divine Chocolate. They will take part in a panel discussion, where they will describe their relationship with Divine Chocolate, share personal stories as farmers growing cocoa and participating in a fair trade cooperative (Kuapo), and talk about their hopes for agriculture and the challenges for the next generation of farmers. Also on the panel will be representatives from Oxfam America, who will discuss Oxfam’s GROW Campaign and Behind the Brands Campaign, and from Slow Food, who will talk about their work.
The event will be an opportunity to learn about the experiences of the different partners working towards the same goals of prioritizing small-scale and women farmers, and encouraging participatory co-ownership, democratic decision making and shared wealth. It will also provide insights into the functioning of the Kuapo cooperative, which markets around 70% of the world’s fair trade chocolate.
To RSVP, or for more info, email Will at firstname.lastname@example.org

The average age of entry into sexual exploitation is 13 years old. 97% of runaways who reach NYC are approached about sex for some food, shelter or safety within 24 hours of arriving. What would it look like to get involved in the lives of vulnerable girls in NYC?
It looks like, GIRL BE HEARD! NYCUP is partnering with this ground-breaking production to raise awareness and call people to faith and action against sex-trafficking and modern-day slavery. Come and see TRAFFICKED on March 30, 7pm @ Barnard College.
During October 4-13, we aim to reach 12,000 people with an invitation to fight human trafficking. We will train more than 500 leaders to call communities to faith and action at 60 traveling art stations, 80 events on 10 campuses, and a catalytic Freedom Festival at City Center in midtown Manhattan.

The disciples asked Jesus, “when we pray, how should we pray?” His response is what we have come to know as the Lord’s Prayer, a pattern for how to talk to Our Father in Heaven. “Teach Us How to Pray” is an interactive prayer event to culminate a week’s worth of service and invite all into a lifetime of following Jesus to seek justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God.
Led by Courtney Wong, we will pray for ourselves, the city, and the world inviting His Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven. We will be praying specifically for end of sex-trafficking and labor slavery through various styles including out loud, in silence, small groups, individually and more. Also, we will use different postures like on our knees, hands open (to receive), and sitting down (resting in God). If you want to pray but don’t “know how” then this is where you want to be!
If you have questions and concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out! We look forward to seeing you there. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
