When it comes to addressing social justice issues in our communities, churches can have a huge impact. We don’t seem to know just how powerful and impactful we can be. We can follow in Jesus’ footsteps in addressing our day’s social ills in the public square. Many churches are pretty successful at addressing social concerns such as hunger and homelessness. Addressing such issues is extremely important, but what if we could change the structure, policies, and practices that create these issues in the first place.
To address these social issues, communities need to organize. Organizing against harmful policies is another way of advocating for those whose lives have been adversely affected. Churches and their leaders can catalyze this kind of action. Saturday, March 27, 10 am - 11 am, the Advocacy and Justice Committee will be hosting a webinar called “Signs of Hope, Stories of Change.” Hear the panel of laypersons and pastors share their faith-led experiences of advocacy around racial justice and other issues that have resulted in meaningful change.
You don’t want to miss this wonderful opportunity. Space is limited to the first 100 participants.
