Advocacy Training for Young Adults!  “Turnaround time is tight, but we’re very excited about new opportunity for young adult advocacy leadership training coming in spring! APPLY BY JANUARY 15 for this time of growth in skills & experience from https://forms.gle/BLEaVnkcdncxmSRS6. “Ready and Real: ELCA Young Leaders in Advocacy” will be facilitated by ELCA Advocacy preceding Ecumenical Advocacy Days, but both experiences are part of the scholarship. Think it over for yourself, tell a friend or congregation member you think shows strong advocacy leadership traits, but don’t wait!”  From our ELCA

NEW & ONGOING:  On the first Wednesday of each month at noon join us for news updates and one focus issue on Facebook Live!  Due to the holiday, our next WNL will be on Dec. 8,   If you haven’t liked us on FB search LOPPW or Click HERE.

Engage! Due to the holiday week, our next ENGAGE will be on Thursday, January 9 at 5:30 PM (soft start for socializing) and 5:45 PM (program).  Young Adults are welcome to join LOPPW for a discussion about social justice over beverages at the Lakeside Coffee House in Madison.

Thank you to LOPPW Advisory Council Member Pastor Andy Twiton of Trinity Lutheran Church in Madison for coming up with the idea of engaging young adults and to LOPPW Volunteer Margaret Staniforth for helping to organize this with her great ideas and experience!
