Practicing Biblical Advocacy (Hamilton, ON)

Apr 27th, 2019 9:30am - 3:30pm   |   Posted by Erin Knight   |   Venue: ON   |   Collaborative Events,Deacons Training

Saturday, April 27, 2019; 9:30am-3:30pm | Immanuel CRC, Hamilton, ON

Advocacy matters! When you speak out, you reflect the biblical call to work towards a just world in which structures and institutions give all of creation the opportunity to thrive.

“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” (Isaiah 1:17)

Contacting elected officials may be daunting, but sharing your well-informed opinion can make a real difference on the justice issues that you care about, and can bring about long-term changes to unjust systems. This workshop will help you learn how to navigate the political system to have your voice heard by local, provincial, and national leaders.

The Office of Social Justice is partnering with Canada Foodgrains Bank and their I CARE Campaign which is focused on ending global hunger and poverty by advocating to the Canadian government to increase aid funding and to change public policies that improve access to food for families and communities.
