The Advocacy Desk
The Advocacy Desk provides church members an opportunity to encourage the congregation to join them in taking a stance about a particular issue, by contacting via e-mail their local [city and county], state and national government representatives, or designated others. Users who wish to write cards or letters can also use the Advocacy Desk to determine the name and address of the person or persons most appropriate to contact.
Desk Availability and Setup
The Advocacy Desk can be available in the Library or the Gore Hall foyer for up to one hour before and one hour after Sunday services, whenever arranged with the Advocacy Coordinator. The Advocacy Desk will be identified by appropriate signage. The church will provide one or more laptop computers.
Responsibility of the Member:
1. Publicizing your Advocacy Desk issue and date through various church media [E-blast, church website and/or Order of Service].
2. Ensuring that one or more individuals knowledgeable about the issue are present while the Advocacy Desk is open. [The Advocacy Coordinator or another individual will explain the laptop set-up and use.]
3. Providing postcards, letters, envelopes, labels, stamps, e-mail addresses, and other materials needed for the advocacy effort.
4. Providing any appropriate printed material at the Advocacy Desk.
