Policy is created by people like you and me.


Advocacy during COVID-19

COVID-19 has stopped many parts of the economy as well as our social and religious life together.

But public policy remains important and indeed a crucial response to the pandemic. Existing economic and racial disparities have been exacerbated over the last few months.

The California Legislature has moved to respond. Legislation moves quickly and all citizen engagement takes place remotely. With new challenges, we’ve found new opportunity to engage with the 400 ELCA congregations in our state through a weekly virtual briefing.

Join Us for
Advocacy in Quarantine.

Wednesdays at noon on zoom.
