Our regional chapters work at the grassroots level, drawing more voices to the call to advocacy. Getting involved with a local chapter is a great way to keep up with everything that is going on and help expand the Center's impact with fun and interactive programs.
Social Justice University
One of our flagship programs is Social Justice University, a series designed to teach members of the faith community how to promote social justice by becoming advocates for systemic change. SJU attendees receive training materials and hear from leaders about issues, advocacy techniques and grassroots organizing. The seminars are a hands-on learning experience that empowers participants to take these skills back to their local community and bring more voices into the legislative and political process.
Candidate Forums, Legislator Trainings and District Visits
With support from the Center, chapters organize candidate forums and legislator trainings and briefing sessions with key legislators to help empower them to be champions for progress, especially on issues of poverty, progressive tax and budget policy.
Fun and Fellowship
Chapter members get together throughout the year to fellowship and share in the spirit of social justice. Events include coffee hours, letter-writing sessions and house parties.
