Tanque Verde ASC: Advocate, Study, Communicate
“And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” - Micah 6:8
Advocacy is activity by an individual or group which aims to influence decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. An advocate is one who provides advocacy support to people who need it.
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 service, and our voices, through our advocacy efforts, to restore and reconcile our world. Based on recommendations found in the ELCA’s Social Statements, we will raise awareness of local and global issues, provide opportunities for study and discussion, and, if so moved, advocate on behalf of others.
Through faithful advocacy, the ELCA lives out our Lutheran belief that governments can help advance the common good. ELCA advocacy works for change in public policy based on the experience of Lutheran ministries, programs, and projects around the world and in communities across the U.S. The ELCA works through political channels on behalf of the following biblical values: peacemaking, hospitality to strangers, care for creation, and concern for people living in poverty and struggling with hunger and disease.
