Our District Leaders - Faithful Leaders in the Public Square
JRLC is only as strong as its network members and local leaders. If you have a passion for justice & advocacy, a love of interfaith networking, and a desire to put your faith into action to make a difference on matters of social justice in Minnesota, sign up to be a JRLC District Leader!
What does a District Leader do?
District Leaders help build support for social justice issues through:
- relationship building,
- contacting legislators,
- hosting JRLC events/forums/workshops in their area,
- facilitating their local delegation’s visits at the Capitol during our annual lobby day, Day on the Hill.
District Leader activities might include meeting with other advocates at your local coffee shop, attending your legislator's local town hall meeting, hosting JRLC staff for a lobby training in your faith community, writing letters to the editor in your local paper, and hosting a community presentation on poverty followed by a panel discussion.
What are the benefits of being a District Leader?
District leadership is a great chance to meet other justice-minded individuals, further develop your advocacy skills, and make a difference on important policy issues in Minnesota.
JRLC will provide you with the support, training, materials, and information you need to take on this role.
We want to make sure that all 67 MN Senate Districts have a strong faithful voice on matters of social justice and our District Leaders help make that happen! To sign up or get more information, contact JRLC's Statewide Organizer, Katie Powell, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
