Virginia Interfaith CenterThe Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy follows legislation on behalf of churches. Churches and individuals may be members. The center’s stated purpose is to inform members about public policy issues, conduct dialogue with individuals and groups about the theological basis of society and legislative issues and about ways to develop a more just and caring society. Second Presbyterian Church is a member of the Center.
Learn. Pray. Act.When government determines a public policy, it is making a choice, and choice is the basis of morality. In serving a God of justice, the faith community witnesses to that God when they become engaged in the legislative process. The faith communities of the Interfaith Center have inherited the role of holding the governmental leaders accountable for their decisions. Since 1982, the Virginia Interfaith Center has been a respected voice bringing people of faith together in effective advocacy for human dignity and social justice. Each faith community has unique concerns, but broad public policy consensus brings together diverse faith communities to make a common witness around common concerns. The Interfaith Center is uniquely structured to represent the moral voice of the faith community on behalf of the politically weak and marginalized.
