Platform for Renewal

On October 7, 2017, CRS Member Congregations gathered at the Annual Membership Assembly and unanimously voted to commission the 2017-2018 Platform for Renewal, which includes the following campaigns: Police Accountability, Restoring Opportunities and Justice Reform, Community Development (Housing and Jobs), Just Economy for Safe Communities and Commitment to Anti-Racism.  Read the AMA Recap >

Our Platform is drawn directly from summer base building efforts and detailed policy forecast analysis. Member Congregations, along with CRS Organizing and Policy staff, participated in issue listening by hosting house meetings, conducting relational meetings and reaching out to the community through canvassing.  Hundreds of people participated in the process and made their voices heard. The Policy and Organizing Committee (POC), a group of leaders elected by the membership, met to distill the learning from this listening process. Issue Teams will lead the campaigns outlined in the resulting 2017-18 Platform for Renewal listed below:
