Diverse voices of faith will join together to strengthen Oregon communities for Interfaith Advocacy Day 2017

With the theme, "Raising Diverse Voices of Faith to Strengthen Oregon Communities," Interfaith Advocacy Day 2017 will bring together people of many religious traditions from throughout Oregon for a day of prayer, dialogue and advocacy with state legislators. Join us in addressing housing, hunger, health care, and gun safety.


Day of check-in opens at 8 a.m., event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There is strength in knowledge and strength in numbers! Join with others from around the state in "Raising Diverse Voices of Faith to Strengthen Oregon Communities." We make it easy for you! Listen to a keynote address by Attorney General Ellen F. Rosenblum. Attend issue briefings and workshops on advocating for compassionate legislation regarding housing, hunger, health care, gun safety, wage theft and climate justice. Then join in a march to the State Capitol, where we will make our faith voice heard in meetings with our state legislators.. We provide talking points and make all necessary appointments for you. Together we can build a just, inclusive and hope-filled future for all Oregonians.
