Join others from many different faith communities and be encouraged to keep advocating on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised in Colorado. Together, our voices can be a strong cry of justice to those who need to hear it.

Faith Advocacy Day will be Monday, Feb. 17, 2014 (President’s Day), 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at History Colorado, 1200 Broadway, Denver. Parking is available for free on the street that day, and pay lots are available in the blocks surrounding the museum.

Our theme this year is Moral Choices: Deficit Reduction/Protecting the Poor. Our keynote speaker will be Ellen Teller, director of government affairs for Food Research and Action Center, the leading national nonprofit organization working to improve public-private partnerships and eradicate hunger in the United States. She will be discussing the impact of federal deficit reduction efforts on various safety net programs nationwide.

We’ll also have a panel discussion about how deficit reduction is specifically affecting the poor in Colorado, with cutbacks in food stamps, subsidized housing and other benefit programs. Finally, we’ll look at ways people of faith can directly shape public policy in Colorado, both by engaging their elected representatives to influence legislation, or by becoming policymakers themselves by getting appointed to one of the nearly 300 boards and commissions that oversee everything from air quality to workforce development in the state.

Registration cost is $30 by Wednesday, Feb. 12, and includes lunch. A low-income/student rate of $20 is available as well.
