More than ever, it is important Episcopalians across the country continue to carry out the Baptismal Covenant call to “strive for justice and peace”. Make your voice heard, make your actions tangible, by participating in the active ministry of public policy advocacy.
Public Policy Advocacy is faith in action. Do you know there is a grassroots network of Episcopalians across the country helps influence the development of legislation and policy of the U.S. federal government on numerous critical issues such as the care of creation, racial reconciliation, ending poverty, migration, refugees, immigration, human rights and peace-building efforts? The Episcopal Public Policy Network connects people who want to advocate for change. We do have power to make change through our hands and voice.
The Office of Government Relations (OGR) represents the policy priorities of The Episcopal Church to the U.S. government in Washington, D.C. and helps to shape the discussion of political issues throughout the Church. OGR aims to influence policy and legislation on critical issues, highlighting the voices and experiences of Episcopalians and Anglicans globally. All policy positions are based on General Convention and Executive Council resolutions, the legislative and governing bodies of the Church. Find out more about their advocacy resources, posts from the Hill, or sign up to receive alerts that help you take action.

An informed and engaged public is essential to democracy. Register to join in weekly policy network calls too. Thursdays, 1-1:30 p.m. EDT. The Office of Government Relations holds a weekly conversation about the policies and legislation for which it is advocating and how Episcopal Church policies intersect with those issues.
