Being an Advocate
Being an advocate does not always involve drastic measures. Everyday, we have the chance to stand up and speak when we see the need. Advocates have the opportunity to speak to their elected representatives, friends, family, and congregations about important issues. Sound interesting? Find out how you can be involved with advocacy and the Episcopal Church here.

The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations cannot advocate for important issues alone. It needs individuals and congregations to write to their representatives, ask for support on social justice issues, and make their voices heard. Working together, we can send a strong message to Congress. Become a member of the Episcopal Public Policy Network today and join committed Episcopalians working for a better world.
How many times have you read an article in the paper or watched a news story and wished there was something you could do? With the Episcopal Public Policy Network, you can. Senators and Representatives care about what you, their constituent, think about a particular issue. Whether you feel passionately about environmental protection, HIV/AIDS funding, or education, you can make your voice heard on Capitol Hill.
State Public Policy Networks
Advocacy can happen at many different levels. The Episcopal Public Policy Network is specifically focused (by General Convention) on federal advocacy. We do have a number of state affiliates that work on state level legislation. Check here to see if your state has a network and to find more information on how to be involved.
