Episcopal Public Policy Network

How many times have you read an article in the paper or watched a news story and wished there was something you could do? With the Episcopal Public Policy Network, you can. Senators and Representatives care about what you, their constituent, think about a particular issue. Whether you feel passionately about environmental protection, HIV/AIDS funding, or education, you can make your voice heard on Capitol Hill. Advocacy can happen at many different levels. The Episcopal Public Policy Network is specifically focused (by General Convention) on federal advocacy. We do have a number of state affiliates that work on state level legislation.
