The Office of Government Relations of The Episcopal Church plays a key role in carrying out the mission of The Episcopal Church by bringing the experiences and values of our faith into decisions about our nation’s public policy. The Office of Government Relations represents the policy priorities of The Episcopal Church to the U.S. government in Washington, D.C. It aims to shape and influence policy and legislation on critical issues, highlighting the voices and experiences of Episcopalians and Anglicans globally. All policy positions are based on General Convention and Executive Council resolutions, the legislative and governing bodies of the Church. Areas of advocacy include: Creation Care; Racial Reconciliation Ending Poverty; Migration, Refugees & Immigration; and Human Rights & Peacebuilding. The Office of Government Relations is one of a group of offices that make up the Ministry Beyond the Episcopal Church team. Through collaboration with the other three offices, building on knowledge, relationships, and skill sets, our advocacy grows richer and more effective. Additionally, the Office of Government Relations works to educate, equip, and engage Episcopalians through the Episcopal Public Policy Network (click the link to sign up for action alerts). As a Church, we raise our voices to ensure that U.S. government policies are in line with our values as Episcopalians and Christians.
