A passion for justice, a desire for peace and a concern for the integrity of God's creation are all essential to the living out of the Gospel. Advocacy is an activity by an individual or a group that aims to influence decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. It means engaging with those institutions to ensure that they uphold our faith’s values: respect for the dignity of every person, justice for those who are marginalised and/or living in poverty, and care for the natural world.
In other words, campaigning is about educating ourselves about the root causes of injustices and putting our faith into action! A more just world is possible, but it's only possible if each one of us gets involved.
