Racial Justice Advocacy Workshop
and Book Studies
Advocacy Workshop: Sponsored by the IK Lutheran Synod Racial Justice Team.
Have you ever wanted to reach out to your local, state, and national representatives, but not been sure how? Wondered if your voice even matters on issues important to you? It does! Your representatives want to hear from you; they want to know what you support, what matters to you and your communities of faith! In this training, we will learn, from members of the Interfaith Action Network in Indiana and the League of Women Voters in Kentucky, how to reach out to our representatives in writing, phone calls, and setting up meetings to talk with them. Learn skills and tools to use to have these valuable conversations with the elected officials who represent you, our communities, states and country. Thursday, August 12, 6:00 – 7:30 (CDT)/7:00 – 8:30 (EDT): Please register in advance:
