Policy

Our Policy Department works with our congregational leaders and Issue Team members, community coalitions, and elected officials in state and county legislative bodies to develop and pass legislation that advances justice, primarily in the areas of economic justice, criminal justice, and tax reform.  The Policy Department also provides training and current political context for our member congregations as they carry out their responsibilities as citizens and persons of faith.
