Faith In Action: Economic Justice Issues and Local Government
Description of Activity
Attend a meeting of a local city council or board of selectmen or a local hearing on an issue related to economic justice, such as workers’ rights, water rights, affordable housing, transit fare increases, or programs that help households meet their basic needs. Observe the proceedings and take notes on how economic justice is or is not supported in your community. Follow up with a letter offering your observations to your elected officials, to a local newspaper, or to a news website.
