Advocacy

AdvocacyWe seek to inform, motivate, empower and support the Episcopal Church Millennium Development Goals for justice for all of God’s creation through resources and partnerships.

Living Our Faith (Advocacy) is a standing committee of the Faith in Action Ministry.  The establishment of the committee is based upon our affirmation to promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations; and our affirmed goal of a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.  Contact Donna Colombo.
