9 AM - New York State Virtual Ecumenical and Interfaith Advocacy Day

Details:

All are invited to participate in our virtual New York State Ecumenical and Interfaith Advocacy Day on February 16, 2022 from 9 AM to 5 PM.

In the early part of the last century, across ethnic divisions and denominations, Christians and people of other faiths across America rose together to oppose child labor, unsafe working conditions, and economic inequality----- some of the worst sins of the First Gilded Age. As we once again work to build a more just society in our time, please join the New York State Council of Churches for a virtual Ecumenical and Interfaith Advocacy Day of learning and action.

Participants will begin with theological and historical grounding and opportunities to reflect on anti-racism followed by a presentation on organizing to address systemic racial and economic inequality in the state budget. We will then offer pointers on speaking with legislators and help you arrange visits with Assembly people and Senators in your area.

We will then hold seminars on the following issue areas:

Economic Development and Hard and Soft Infrastructure

Affordable Housing

Health Care

Environmental Justice

Labor and Immigration

Criminal Justice Reform

Democracy, Government Ethics and Voting Rights


Our time together will be all virtual from 9 AM to 5 PM with periodic breaks.

This event is free but please RSVP by completing this registration form.

In addition, sponsorships from all secular and faith groups are also most welcome to underwrite our costs. Purchase sponsorships by clicking here

We look forward to having you join us!
