NEW ADVOCACY RESOURCE - Interested in practicing advocacy and learning how to steward your voice more effectively? Learn the basics of advocacy for any issue by using this new Biblical Advocacy 101 resource developed by the Office of Social Justice, World Renew, and the Centre for Public Dialogue in partnership with other organizations. Visit crcna.org/advocacy101us for the U.S. version and crcna.org/advocacy101canada for the Canadian version, or order a paper copy of the resource on Faith Alive. As Christians we work toward a just world in which structures and institutions give every person the opportunity to thrive. Providing direct assistance to people in need is vital, but it is also important to guard against policies that oppress, to partner with marginalized communities for long-term change, and to speak up for policies that empower all people. Use this resource to learn how you can begin, or continue, to advocate as a Christian.
