A Ministry of the ELCA - Supported by World Hunger

Develop Advocates for a Public Church

Through leading workshops and trainings, offering resources, and individualized consultations, LOPPW assists ELCA members in Wisconsin, with support to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, strengthen their ability to advocate for just policies that reflect our values.  We accomplish all of this with one staff person, a vibrant advisory council representing six synods, interns, a growing number of volunteers, and the grace of God.

We do all of this keeping a focus on our being faith-based advocates.  There many avenues through which we can love our neighbor.  Advocacy is one of those responses.  We begin, continue and end with God in all that we do as advocates.  We are not partisan but support and counter policies based on our values as a church.

Please check out our resources and advocacy tools page: Learn More!

We also keep you alert to what is happening with state and some federal legislation via social media, which includes blogs.  You can learn more on our Facebook!  We appreciate everyone who signs up for action alerts.  If you haven’t please sign up!

Please feel free to contact our LOPPW office if you have questions or would like a workshop in your area:  cindyc@loppw.org
