Council of Churches of the City of New York
By Gorilla Web | September 15, 2015 |
A key effort of the Council is in the raising of critical issues in the public square with and on behalf of its churches and members. The Council coordinates meetings with city and state officials on such subjects as homelessness, low-cost housing, poverty, welfare programs and policing in the community. It also provides round tables engaging with corporate, non-profit and political leaders around a public vision for the city which also develops an infrastructure for preparing public policy position papers.
