Ecumenical Advocacy Days (April 6-8) focus on farm & food policy


The annual Ecumenical Advocacy Days begin this weekend in Washington, DC, culminating in visits to Capitol Hill on Monday, April 8. As reported in previous eBulletins, NCRLC executive director Jim Ennis will present at a session on Saturday, April 6. Joining fellow Catholics, he will discuss NCRLC’s efforts in meeting this year’s Ecumenical Advocacy theme: Food Justice for a Healthy World.

Not able to attend Ecumenical Advocacy Days? You can still review and download materials that participants will use to talk about the Farm Bill.Click here for Lobby Day materials. These can be used when contacting your representatives by phone or email, or to distribute to your own network for their attention. The more voices calling for a just Farm Bill, the more likelihood that reform will come about.
