Through the Public Witness Ministry of the Pennsylvania Council of Churches we…
- empower people of faith, through education and skill-building, to make a difference for the common good in the public square;
- advocate on behalf of the Council’s member church bodies before Pennsylvania’s legislative and administrative branches of government.
The Council’s Principles for Public Advocacy, informed by scripture and the positions of our member communions/denominations, guide our efforts. Legislative priorities are set every two years in coordination with each two year legislative session. The Council’s Board also adopts resolutions to provide a more formal, public stance on particular issues. Find these documents here.
Please join us in helping to build a more just society!
