The Episcopal Church is committed to addressing extreme poverty, conflict and suffering around the world. We work in partnership with Episcopal congregations, companion dioceses and the Anglican Communion to advance U.S. government policies that support the world’s most vulnerable. We work to foster global reconciliation and ensure that all might eventually live safe, secure, prosperous lives.
We address food insecurity by ensuring that federal programs, from child nutrition programs to international food assistance, serve those most in need and are efficiently administered. We support legislation and policies that aim to prevent domestic violence and gender-based violence in foreign countries, and that protect the human rights of LGBT persons.
Currently, our four geographic regions of focus are the Great Lakes, Sudan and South Sudan, Central America, and Haiti.
