When the ELCA Task Force on Women and Justice began it’s work in 2012, they were charged to foster church dialogue around issues of sexism. They had no idea those issues would be dominating the headlines when they scheduled the publication of the “Draft Social Statement on Women and Justice” for 2018! You are invited to join this timely conversation about the draft because the voices of everyone from across our church are needed.
How can you join the conversation?
You can read the draft and respond. Just as talking together helped the task force to think about these issues, you are encouraged to get together with a group. You also may choose to attend a hearing in your synod. Click here to learn more about all of these options. The comment period is open through Sept. 30, 2018.
