Advocacy and Organizing

CWS grassroots advocacy efforts encompass thousands of congregations and individuals, working to advance policies that address our priority concerns including refugee resettlement and the rights and dignity of all migrants; the elimination of global hunger and poverty; disaster risk reduction and climate change; and resolving man-made conflicts.

Grounded in faith, our advocacy work seeks to build and strengthen relationships, build partnerships and coalitions, and advocate for a more just and peaceful world.

In recent years, as policy changes have threatened the lives of immigrants and refugees, we have ramped up our efforts to ensure that communities across the country remain places of welcome and hope. At the state level, we are at the forefront, mobilizing our network and partners to make their voices heard. We continue to grow our efforts to advocate alongside immigrant and refugee leaders—from the streets of their communities to the halls of Congress.
