Marching for the MDGs (Virtually)

On Thursday, July 24, more than 600 Anglican bishops, their spouses and other faith leaders from around the United Kingdom will march through central London to show the Anglican Communion’s support of the Millennium Development Goals and making poverty history.

You can “march” with them.

The Episcopal Public Policy Network and Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation are sponsoring a "Virtual March for the MDGs" to coincide with the Lambeth Conference walk. The aim is the same. Only instead of walking through the streets of London with the bishops, we'll be sending emails into Congressional inboxes in Washington, D.C. asking our leaders to share our commitment to the MDGs and making poverty history.

How do I participate?

The "Virtual March" of advocacy -- Just click here to enter your email and sign up for the march. After registering there, on July 24th you'll get an email with a link to click and take an MDG-related advocacy action (the precise action will be decided in the coming weeks. EPPN will choose the most effective action based on the status of various pieces of anti-poverty legislation before Congress). The whole process will take no more than 3 minutes each time.

Join the bishops and support the MDGs.
