Be An Advocate! Raise Your Voice on Capitol Hill
Zillah Wesley, Lizette Merchan, Sandy Sorensen, Rev. Mike Neuroth, Katie Adams, and Jessi Quinn
This workshop will highlight the stories of local church leaders and advocates who have partnered with and used resources developed by the UCC DC office. It will also give attendees practical, usable information to get connected to resources to grow their justice work in the congregation. We will share the theological underpinnings to the UCC's justice work and help attendees link how their faith voice matters in the public sphere. Attendees can expect a better understanding of of how the UCC does public policy advocacy, what other faith leaders advocates are doing around the country, and concrete steps they can take to advocate for the issues that matter most to them and their congregations.
