A Current Focus of Christian Churches Together in the USA
Domestic Poverty is a focus of Christian Churches Together in the USA. We invite all churches and organizations to engage this issue in any way that is appropriate in your setting. We would like to hear of such engagements so we can report about them to other participants and in order to share ideas for study and action that have worked in actual practice. Please send your reports (and additional suggested resources) to firstname.lastname@example.org

We pray that our collective witness will help to make this a turning point in the history of our nation and the world.”
