Movement-building is hard work. We can’t do it alone. One generation alone can’t get it done. We need each other and deep spiritual sustenance to keep going and create the just world our children deserve. CDF’s Proctor Institute is where we can sing and pray, strategize and struggle, organize and advocate, and share our stories—our hurts and hopes, pain and passion for justice, in Beloved Community.

Held on the storied grounds of CDF Haley Farm, the spiritual home of the children’s movement, the Proctor Institute is where we refresh and renew so that we can continue the hard, hopeful, sacred work of pursuing justice for children and ending child poverty.
