Racial Justice: Advocacy

Racial Justice: Advocacy

Advocacy = The work of the Spirit of God which is Love

In response to our continued learning and growing in understanding of the issues of Racial Justice a group of Immanuel people have expressed interest in the ministry of Advocacy, using our voices to speak on behalf of those who are marginalized.

THE ELCA is committed to the work of Advocacy  


Connecting faith and public life
As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. God uses our hands, through our direct service work and our voices, through our advocacy efforts, to restore and reconcile our world. Through faithful advocacy, the ELCA lives out our Lutheran belief that governments can help advance the common good.

ELCA Anti-Racism Pledge
As church we are called to confess the sin of racism, condemn the ideology of white supremacy and strive for racial justice and peace. Beyond statements and prayers, we are also called to act and respond to injustices. We invite you to commit to anti-racist actions at ELCA.org/RacialJusticePledge
