Issues and Policies


In seeking a sufficient, sustainable livelihood for all, sustainability encompasses many issues.



In the ELCA we believe that, through baptism, God is calling us into the world to serve together. Shaped by the ELCA’s social teaching documents and the experiences of its congregations, ministries and partners, we advocate to end world hunger and stand up for policies that create opportunities to overcome poverty, promote peace and dignity, preserve God’s creation and promote equity and justice.
