NEW YORK — May 2024 — It’s almost summer and the Askew family could be planning to head to a theme park, the beach or even visiting grandparents for the weekend. But on one particular weekend, Damani and Sophia Askew and their two kids are eagerly anticipating a three-day convention with a few thousand people who will come to hear exciting good news.

“The convention is a nice reprieve from our daily grinds,” said Damani Askew, of Manhattan. “Everyone is busy, so it’s wonderful to come together as a family and enjoy three days of positivity with others in the community.”

One of the largest convention organizations in the world returns to the Queens Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Sunnyside, Queens with a much-anticipated motivational program to comfort and encourage the public.

“These conventions help us cope with life’s pressures and are sure to be a highlight for anyone who wants to experience refreshing news and a positive view of the future.”

In a world where bad news endlessly streams on social media, TV and radio, Jehovah’s Witnesses will present their 2024 “Declare the Good News!” convention series beginning the weekend of May 24-26, 2024. The free, three-day live event is expected to draw more than 20,000 attendees to the city over the course of fourteen weekends ¬— fueling the city’s economy with local spending at stores, hotels and restaurants.

“We are so happy to be back in Sunnyside, Queens to host our summer conventions,” said Mark Godoy, local spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “These conventions help us cope with life’s pressures and are sure to be a highlight for anyone who wants to experience refreshing news and a positive view of the future.”

The “Declare the Good News!” convention will present Bible-based videos, discourses and interviews on topics such as:

• Why Do We Need Good News?
• Use the Good News to Defeat Bad News.
• Why We Don’t Fear Bad News.

Saturday features a baptism of candidates from surrounding communities, while a two-part video feature will captivate the audience on Friday and Saturday morning. Prior to each convention, local congregations will engage in a campaign to invite community members to this free event.

Last year, nearly 13 million people attended more than 6,000 three-day conventions worldwide.
