FALL ARCHIVES SOJOURN 2015: EXPLORING THE FUTURE OF OUR PAST
From Sept. 21-25th, the ICA Global Archives team came together for the largest sojourn to date, with 50 colleagues joining both in person and virtually. The sojourn had three major areas of focus:
• Historic Use of the GreenRise Building
• Training Inc.
• New Religious Mode
Historic Use of the GreenRise Building
The task before this team was to find evidence supporting the use of the building as a place where innovative social justice programs were designed, coordinated and implemented over 44 years. This work is integral to the process of the ICA GreenRise applying to become a National Historic Landmark (NHL).

FAITH AND SUSTAINABILITY FORUM A GREAT SUCCESS!
Over 85 participants from communities across the Chicagoland area gathered at the ICA GreenRise to meet like-minds and share approaches on faith based sustainability projects. The day was designed to engage individuals on multiple levels including a panel Q&A, presentations and discussions within the four tracks of Eco-Justice , Energy, Urban Agriculture, and Spirit, a lunch with local resource providers and finally a next steps by geographic areas (N/S/W). Thank you to all our participants, partners, and sponsors!
