In December IWJ launched Faith Advocates for Jobs, a campaign aimed at tackling the unemployment crisis through national advocacy, educational outreach, and organizing unemployed worker support committees in congregations.
Faith Advocates for Jobs has now produced a toolkit for congregations that want to get involved with the campaign. Standing With the Unemployed: A Congregational Toolkit can be downloaded here (it's a PDF).
In the toolkit you'll find:
- Campaign Goals
- Worship Resources
- Congregational Pledge
- What Can Your Congregation Do?
- Coming Together in a Time of Crisis
- Getting Immediate Help to Unemployed Workers
- The Spiritual Meaning of the Economic Crisis
Please download the toolkit and let others know about it -- via e-mail, facebook, listservs, or however you share information.
