Advocacy class at the GAP Institute

Last week Patricia Kisare and I led the first-ever “advocacy class” at the Global Anabaptist Peacebuilders (GAP) Institute, sponsored by West Coast MCC. We discussed why advocacy is important, explored Scripture passages about relating to the government, and learned how to do advocacy, from emails to congressional visits. We also got a chance to try it out, meeting with staff from Senator Feinstein’s and Senator Boxer’s district offices in Fresno and Sacramento. Thanks to a great group of students for sharing the week with us!
