Our Mission: Advocating for justice in public policy to alleviate poverty and hunger.

About LAM-NM

Lutheran Advocacy Ministry – NM is called to advocate for justice in public policy, with a particular emphasis on alleviating poverty and hunger, by speaking with and for those who have little or no political power and supporting ELCA members, congregations  and ecumenical partners in the ministry of advocacy.  As a state public policy office of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Rocky Mountain Synod , Lutheran Advocacy Ministry – NM speaks on behalf of the official positions of the ELCA as applied to the specific context of public policy issues in New Mexico.

The ELCA constitution states that the church is to “study social issues and trends, work to discover the causes of oppression and injustice, and develop programs of ministry and advocacy to further human dignity, freedom, justice, and peace in the world.”
