PUBLIC POLICY & ADVOCACY
As members of the Episcopal-branch of the Jesus Movement, we believe that ‘thoughts and prayers’ must be accompanied by action and advocacy. The following organizations and agencies can be helpful in development of conscience, advocacy, and public witness:
Gun Violence Prevention Task Force
Working together with Protect Minnesota and other interfaith and public policy partners, the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force educates and organizes around common sense laws to protect all Minnesotans. For more information, contact Dr. Rebecca Hawthorne, Convener.
Climate Justice Task Force
The Climate Justice Task Force is committed to supporting and resourcing the Cathedral community to become active and dynamic advocates for creation. The Task Force is bolstered by Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, a collective of more than twenty congregations throughout the state, and the Cathedral Earth Keepers education network. For more information, contact Joe Ward, Convener.
The Joint Religious Legislative Coalition is the largest and most inclusive interfaith public interest group in Minnesota. Sponsoring members: the Minnesota Catholic Conference, the Minnesota Council of Churches, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, and the Islamic Center of Minnesota.
Protect Minnesota is the only independent, state-based gun violence prevention organization and draws from a network of gun violence survivors, gun owners, veterans, physicians, educators, public health professionals, social workers, hunters, farmers, faith leaders, elected officials, law enforcement officers, and parents.
The Greater Minneapolis Community Connections is a city-wide network of people of faith working to serve parents, children, and elders in the Twin Cities area and throughout greater Minnesota.
