Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Human Rights and Religious Freedom

Our baptismal covenant calls us to “respect the dignity of every human being.” Our church partners around the world know they can count on us to stand with them as they seek relief from persecution or justice for oppressed minorities. Even as we Episcopalians build awareness in our own churches, we seek to bring the plight of others to our nation’s lawmakers. Review the record below, listen to your heart, and discern where in the world God’s people are calling for your prayers and support.

Working together for justice.
