Lutheran Advocacy-Minnesota (LA-MN) is a state public policy office of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We advocate for justice in the areas of hunger, poverty and care of God’s creation. Working with congregations, ELCA Lutherans and others, we create networks to advance public policies that promote and protect the common good.
Advocacy Update: November 2018
Homes for All Coalition: Meetings galore!!! Never have there been so many proposals to consider for the coalition’s collaborative agenda! LA-MN Director Tammy Walhof, serving with the Homes for All Policy Team, engaged by listening to proposal presentations, evaluating proposals, and helping cull them to a more manageable list. One colleague thinks the team spent around 30 hours in that process!
Environmental Coalitions: LA-MN is part of Minnesota Environmental Partnership (MEP), the MN 100% Campaign, and the State Climate Table. Tammy, in leadership positions with both the MEP Energy Cluster and the Climate Table, has worked hard to bring more unity and common focus to the array of groups and coalitions. She will be turning over her MEP Cluster leadership to others, allowing more time with churches throughout Minnesota actually addressing issues.
