UCC Justice and Peace Action Network
About the Justice and Peace Action Network
The Justice and Peace Action Network (JPANet) is our denomination’s grassroots advocacy network composed of individual members and local UCC congregations across the country.
The JPANet both educates and engages its members in shaping public policy in keeping with God’s vision of a just and loving society. Our work is grounded in General Synod resolutions, consonant with historic UCC witness, and formed by a biblical understanding of prophetic ministry.
JPANet members collectively advocate on a variety of issues for social change that promotes the Common Good. These issue areas are resourced by national staff of the Justice and Witness Ministries and Wider Church Ministries who work with local UCC advocates to shape coordinated strategy on our common witness. The Global Concerns issue area is shared with staff of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ),the UCC’s partner in global ministry.
There are great possibilities and challenges ahead for justice advocacy in 2015. As we begin a new year, will you help strengthen the movement for justice?
There is no question – Our voices are strongest when we lift them together!
