What We Do
We act out of gratitude for the grace in our lives and respond to God’s calling to love and have compassion. LOPPW does this with a witness as a public church. We advocate for justice, protection of human rights, and responsible stewardship of God’s creation with a special emphasis on hunger and poverty. We seek to reconcile people who are estranged or who have no political power.
LOPPW’s advocacy is on the level of public policy. We build relationships with political leaders and expand an advocacy network of ELCA members across the state. We also join with other faith-based groups and secular organizations to deepen our impact and support the efforts of others who act as instruments of God’s peace.
