Why Advocate?

Did you know that one of the ways MCC works at relief, development and peace is through advocacy to government?

We believe that advocacy can be part of making the world a better place and that we are called to act and work together for change!

In order to do our work, it’s important that MCC addresses policies that contribute to poverty and injustice. Advocacy is how we do that.

Our advocacy work is rooted in the understanding that we are called by God to be a voice with and for the poor, oppressed and marginalized. We take our inspiration from the biblical witness of Moses, Esther, John the Baptist, the prophets and Jesus himself.

At MCC we base our advocacy on what we hear from workers and partners carrying out relief, development and peace work around the world; we believe loving our neighbours means their voices shape our message to governments.

Check out our advocacy toolkit for some practical ways you can join in this work, including setting up a meeting with your member of Parliament and writing a letter.
