Advocacy, Organizing & the Bible

2015 Youth Workshop – Miguel Rodriguez

Every day, policy decisions are analyzed, debated and made regarding the public school system, health and safety, and the society that our youth will enter. Far too frequently those decisions are made without any input from the young people and individuals who will have to live with them. Members of the communities most impacted on issues such as immigration reform, anti-war, education reform, sustainable green works have taken to the streets. The questions young believers are struggling with is “Do I take to the streets as well?”

This workshop explores real social-economic issues and helps to develop a better understanding of racism and classicism. We will also explore developing biblical perspectives to approach such issues.
