PPF is called to be movers and shakers within the PC(USA) and beyond, encouraging one another to take seriously God’s call to God’s people to participate in God’s nonviolent work of love, peace, and justice in the world. Advocacy at General Assembly is an important part of how we answer this call.
As we approach the 224th General Assembly in June 2020, this page will be regularly updated with information about PPF’s support and advocacy.
SAVE THE DATE for these events with PPF at GA. Details forthcoming.
