Program Description
Ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, St. Columban Mission for Justice, Peace and Ecology is offering a four-session advocacy training for faithful citizens. The sessions will be on October 18, 20, 25, & 27 from 7:30pm to 9:00pm ET each night. This virtual training is designed to give people of faith the spiritual formation, the tools, and the network to make informed decisions in the midterm election and to advocate for a just society.

Participants will receive training in the following areas:

October 18: Voting
October 20: Storytelling for change
October 25: Building relationship with your Members of Congress
October 27: Community organizing

Sessions will be held from 7:30pm to 9:00pm ET on October 18, 20, 25, and 27. An agenda will be released in the coming weeks.

Our training is informed by our organization's experience living in solidarity with those who are made poor and marginalized around the world, including the wounded earth, as well as Catholic Social Teaching.

In order for us to provide as much individualized mentorship and feedback as possible, we only have a limited number of spots available for this training. The deadline to apply is September 30. Your responses to the open-ended questions should meaningfully answer the question while also being concise.

While we encourage all people to apply for this training, please note that the training will be most applicable for those living in a country with a representative system of government.
