Congregation Action

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.
