Legislative Advocacy

What is Legislative Advocacy?
Small actions lead
to big change.

Love comes in many forms. As Jesus told us to love our neighbors, doing so often means much more than simple acts of kindness. United Methodists have a long tradition of working to make life better for everyone, especially those Jesus called “the least of these.” Legislative advocacy turns love into policies that “resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves (from the United Methodist Baptismal vows).” We advocate for changes in laws, systems, and structures in order to love others.
