Interfaith Congregation Action Network (I-CAN) was a program of the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee that sought to engage members of area congregations in advocacy efforts around issues affecting low-income individuals and families. One of its last projects was the creation of the advocacy guide described below.

From Charity to Justice: An Advocacy Guide for Congregations to Move From Charity to Justice is an activity guide written by the I-CAN Committee to be used by congregations looking for tools to help transition from doing charitable work to advocacy.

What are the goals of this activity guide?

  • To help congregations to understand the difference between doing charity work and being advocates for justice.
  • To inspire congregations to choose at least one issue to act on to effect systemic change.
  • To provide some guidelines for congregations to begin to take action.

Who is the target audience for this activity guide?

  • This curriculum is intended for all members of the congregation, including clergy, committee members and congregants.
