Leaflet advertising a conference on Namibia at Wartburg Seminary on March 4 - 6, 1983. The conference is called the "first-of-its-kind" training event about the struggle of the Namibian people for independence. The American Lutheran Church (ALC) has taken a strong stand on Namibia and has encouraged its members to become informed and involved. The Namibia Conference is sponsored by the ALC's Division of World Mission and Inter-Church Cooperation. The leaflet says resource people will be the representatives of the SWAPO Mission to the U.N., United Nations Council on Namibia, and the U.S. House and Senate. Other resource people will include Namibian students, Ed May from Lutheran World Ministries, Bill Johnston from Episcopal Churchmen for South Africa, Jerry Herman from American Friends Service Committee, John Evenson from LCA's Namibia Advocacy team, Kim Zalent from the Lutheran Coalition for South Africa, Charles Ruehle from Lutheran Human Relations Association, Martin SÓ§vik from LCUSA Office on Governmental Affairs, Charles Lutz from ALC Office on Church and Society,  and Mark Thomsen from the ALC Division of World Mission and Inter-Church Cooperation.
