Are you interested in making your voice heard on environmental issues, but unsure how to do so?
We want to empower you and your house of worship to build relationships with your elected officials to show your support for policies that protect the land, water and air that we all share.
Join us on Saturday, April 21st at 10am for a Faithful Citizen Workshop hosted by the Chicago Metropolitan Association of the United Church of Christ.
The event will be held at Chicago Theological Seminary at 1407 E. 60th Street in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood.
This interactive training will help you obtain a clearer understanding of ways to be engaged and empowered to make a difference in environmental policy from the perspective of a person of faith.
Learn more about the legislative process and the importance of citizen voices. Gain confidence in speaking to your elected officials through role playing exercises and question and answer sessions. Gain insight into how environmental issues and climate change are interrelated to economic and social justice for our neighbors.
One of the best opportunities to get involved (and use what you will have learned at the workshop) is by attending our upcoming Advocacy Day at the state capitol in Springfield on Thursday, April 26th.
