In responding faithfully to God’s call for abundant life for all people, a common life in which no one is left behind, we are drawn inevitably to engage in public policy advocacy and decision-making.
The UCC Washington DC Office was called into being by a resolution at General Synod 10 in 1975. This predecessor body to Justice and Witness Ministries (then called the Office for Church in Society) was created to assume a leadership function for social action concerns in the UCC and to provide resources to the national, conference and local churches.
THE GOAL of the UCC JWM Washington office is to make a better world possible by addressing the systemic problems that we face as a country and as part of the world. Hunger, poverty, peace and security, racism, care for the earth. These are among the types of justice issues that we work to improve through federal policies.
