Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy


The statistics for HIV/AIDS both at home and abroad are devastating. However, HIV/AIDS does not appear in someone’s life as a statistic or percentage; it comes as the infected mother who inadvertently passes the virus to her children, as the orphan who has lost both parents, or as the confused adolescent struggling to survive. These, whether in Washington, DC or South Africa, are the faces of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Church through its public policy advocacy and with the National Episcopal AIDS Coalition has taken many steps to address this devestating epidemic. With faith, we can make a difference.

Working together for justice.
