Policy, formerly Protestants for the Common Good, works with CRS congregational leaders and members, community coalitions, and elected officials in state and county legislative bodies to develop and pass legislation surrounding the common good, primarily in the areas of economic justice, criminal justice, and tax reform. We also equip people in local churches to examine their responsibilities as citizens through a theological lens with our trainings, blogs, monthly e-news, and social media.

Key Issues
The key issues of Community Renewal Society (CRS) that comprise our annual Platform for Renewal are drawn directly from listening to leaders of member congregations and community residents.

Take Action!
