Learn about Episcopal Church Policy on Immigration and Refugee Issues. Read an overview here.
Contact your elected officials to tell them that you support your refugee neighbors and the resettlement program. You can do this through the Episcopal Public Policy Network (EPPN). The EPPN is a grassroots network of Episcopalians dedicated to striving for justice and peace. Through the EPPN action center, you contact your member of Congress directly via email, participate in direct advocacy, and spread awareness in your community. Click here to learn more about the Episcopal Church’s ministry of advocacy. Join the EPPN.
Advocate using these resources from EPPN:
An updated Faith and Citizenship Guide for Advocacy seeks to help you fulfill your baptismal covenant to strive for justice and peace. While it is focused on the federal level, the advocacy tips and tactics recommended throughout the guide are applicable to state and local advocacy as well.
The Postcard Project invites Episcopalians to engage in “slow advocacy” to shift the focus from reactionary outreach to long-term, big-picture strategy and relationship building with government officials. Use this guide to create advocacy events in your congregation.
The EPPN Ambassador Program is a curated group of Episcopalians across the Church who help amplify our messaging on advocacy, education, and civic engagement. We are slowly building this program with the goal of one ambassador in each diocese. We’d love to have you join this group of brand ambassadors to help get more folks advocating with us.
