Advocacy Resources for Pastors
Advocacy, like discipleship, is a marathon, not a sprint.
Writing letters to your members of Congress, calling your members of Congress, and expressing your views in letters to the editor of your local paper are effective ways you and your congregation can advocate for poverty-focused development assistance (PFDA).
We want to make it as simple as possible for you to advocate for and with those struggling with hunger and living in poverty.
Visit Bread for the World’s action center to make your voice heard today.
