Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy


Over the years we have expressed our solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Africa through mission service, funding partnerships, emergency response, and public policy advocacy. We have used multiple avenues to end apartheid in South Africa, persecution in Sudan, and war in Liberia and Sierra Leone. Central to our public policy advocacy has been our efforts to bring relief to heavily indebted countries in order to free up funds for education and health care work and our commitment to the Millennium Developments Goals to fight poverty that kills as well as HIV/AIDS and malaria. Bring your voice to new efforts toward justice and peace in Africa.

Working together for justice.
