“Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you.” ~Isaiah 42:5-6a

Oak Park, IL
It's policy workshop time again. Join us for one of these three offerings, intended to introduce our legislative strategy for 2012, and get people ready to write letters, make phone calls, hold in-district visits and go to Springfield with us to advocate for the sustainable state we want.
This year's efforts will focus on the fracking regulation we got through the Senate but not the House in 2011 (we're very hopeful it will pass this year, with everyone's efforts), and a new bill designed to expand the rights of citizens to look to their own interests when they are impacted adversely by environmentally destructive activity. Find out the details and play another round of Faith in Place's Public Policy Bingo game, while you meet colleagues from other congregations who are exploring a more active civic presence motivated by the values of their faiths.
