Whether it’s a vocation or an individual passion, advocacy on policy issues can be a powerful way to love our neighbor. Young adults in the ELCA Hunger Advocacy Fellowship program developed this Advocacy 101 overview featuring interviews with activists (such as the woman who fought for greater access to lupus medication during the pandemic), group activities (which could be creating a report card for a representative on your issues), and skill-building to step confidently into the possibilities. Use by yourself or in a group.
