Advocacy isn’t a cause, it's a calling

Inspired by our faith, we believe everyone deserves to be loved, connected, and safe. By becoming an advocate, you can help change policies, change perspectives, and change lives.

Your advocacy matters

Each of us seeks love and connection. But our world knows a million ways to break. The largest refugee crisis in history separates children from their parents. War and famine destroy families’ homes and livelihoods. The opioid epidemic leaves children scared and alone.

When we lift our voices, we can collectively advance policies that protect children, empower youth, and strengthen families.

Why we fight for children and families

Inspired by our faith, we seek to love our neighbors and welcome foreigners. We will never stop fighting for vulnerable people and the love and safety they seek.

Because no matter what forces pull us apart, there’s a greater force that brings us together: family.

“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”

- Isaiah 1:17
