Mission Our advocacy together in the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance is guided by a Covenant for Action. Campaigns are guided by strategy groups overseen by the International Reference Group. All committee members come from EAA participating organizations.
Description

The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, an ecumenical initiative of the World Council of Churches (WCC-EAA), is a global network of churches and related organizations committed to campaigning together on common concerns for justice and human dignity.

Alliance members represent tens of millions of Christians around the world who share the conviction that advocacy against unjust structures, practices and attitudes should not be a task we engage in when it is convenient, but must be a fundamental requirement of living out our faith. The WCC-EAA includes large international organizations such as the Caritas Internationalis, World YWCA and Lutheran World Federation, as well as large and small national organizations such as Madras Christian Council of Social Services (India), Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Mission, Tearfund (United Kingdom), Presbyterian World Service and Development (Canada).
