The Interfaith Alliance News

Seeking the renewal of the world

St. Andrew’s is a partner congregation of The Interfaith Alliance.  With their expertise in social justice advocacy to guide us, we can stay up to date on meaningful actions that can be taken to advocate for social and racial justice.  They provide education and up-to-date information on ways to affect the state legislative process and to participate in other events to influence the renewal of the world, which is part of the mission of St. Andrew’s.  You can check this site regularly.  Especially during the legislative session, we will try to keep you apprised of current legislation and of suggested actions you could take to make a difference.

If you have any questions or would like to get more involved or receive the weekly emails we get from The Interfaith Alliance, please contact Sue Torfin at storfin9@gmail.com or Betsy Hoover at betsyhoover@me.com.

Beloved Community Village

“The 13-0 vote late Monday came after city officials acknowledged the process of informing neighbors has been imperfect and hurried, but said moving the village was necessary to save a shelter alternative that could be part of a faceted strategy to address homelessness. Beloved Community Village had only two weeks left on its permit at its current location near the 38th and Blake commuter rail station.”

Thanks to all of you who contacted Denver City Council members to show support of the Beloved Community Village and helped convey the importance of having a location for the Beloved Community Village to reside. Keep posted in the near future for how you can help move the Beloved Community Village, or support this transition.
