Apr 10 : Advocacy in our Congregations
Advocacy in our Congregations: Can we end hunger in our communities once and for all?
Yes, we can, but it will require us to be advocates as well as servants in our communities. During our time, we will discuss what advocacy means for us as people of faith. Learn to be effective advocates in our congregations and communities alongside those who hunger and thirst.
Training led by Deacon Nick Bates, J.D.
A graduate of Capital Law School and Trinity Lutheran Seminary (2012), Nick Bates has nearly two decades worth of non-profit advocacy experience on issues related to homeless children and youth, state budget and tax policy, hunger, voting rights, and other anti-poverty efforts. He serves as the director of the Hunger Network in Ohio, an ecumenical ministry, that works to end hunger by addressing the root causes of poverty through public policy advocacy. HNO is Ohio’s state advocacy ministry for the ELCA.
