Policy

Policy, formerly Protestants for the Common Good, works with CRS congregational leaders and members, community coalitions, and elected officials in state and county legislative bodies to develop and pass legislation surrounding the common good, primarily in the areas of economic justice, criminal justice, and tax reform. We also equip people in local churches to examine their responsibilities as citizens through a theological lens with our trainings, blogs, monthly e-news, and social media.
