Friday 1-2:30 pm
Presenter: Marcia Ledford, Diocese of Michigan
Parishioners worry that by participating in public advocacy and protests against government actions jeopardize a church's tax exempt-(501 (c) (3) status. This isn't the case, and there is a lot we can do to create a more just society.
The Rev. Dr. Marcia Ledford, Esq., priest and attorney, will give an overview of our Christian responsibility to advocate, with and for, those suffering on the margins. The First Amendments rights of expression guarantee our protection to speak and act.
Participants will work on public theology case studies from our province to find possible public actions. Attendees are welcome to submit an issue, or case studies will be provided. Let's brainstorm and publicly work for justice!
