Publications and Sign On Letters 2003

The Episcopal Church, Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations, and the Episcopal Public Policy Network are always working to ensure that the voices of Episcopalians throughout the country are heard during social issue debates. We work with other groups through coalitions as well as work independently. Sometimes our work occurs during private meetings and at other times it happens more formally. Below you will find links to publications that state the Church's position on many issues as well as letters written by the presiding bishop and your government relations team to political leaders and federal agencies.
