Advocacy for Clergy and Congregations webinar
January 07, 2016
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?
The Theological School at Drew University
will offer a webinar series led by Katey Zeh titled "When Mercy and Justice Meet: Advocacy for Clergy and Congregations," beginning Feb. 18, 2016. 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. 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.
