I love teaching people about how to do advocacy, so this February I’ll be partnering with Drew Theological Seminary to offer an three-part webinar series on advocacy for clergy and congregations. Here’s the course overview:
From food pantries to global missions, faith communities are known for their acts of mercy and charity that benefit their broader communities and the world. But what does it mean for people of faith to address the root causes of injustice?
Rooted in a biblical and theological perspective, this three-session course will guide clergy and laity who are interested in advocacy through each step of building a dynamic grassroots campaign that addresses a key issue or concern in their community in their community. Each session will provide the practical steps needed to develop and execute an action plan, including building partnerships, setting goals, engaging volunteers, and working with policymakers.
Registration for the course is $20 and is open to all. Visit Drew’s website for more information and how to register. Hope to see you then!
