We are called to faithful advocacy.

Black lives matter.

The ELCA stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter. Take the anti-racist pledge with us: listen, learn, and act. Support the movement with us by donating to local bail funds.

At LOPPCA, we are expanding our policy priorities from broad racial justice to include criminal justice. We are supporting several bills as well as key constitutional amendments which will be on the ballot in November 2020.

Faith

Lutheran baptismal calling is the basis of our advocacy work to do peace and justice in all the earth.

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.
