Communications Committee Focus Groups

Beginning in April of 2020, Faith Action formed a communications committee

whose purpose is to inform, on a regular basis, the broad membership of the

organization. Shared information has included news about service projects,

updates about organizational structure and behavior, and explanations of our

civic engagement via our task forces. Especially during the next few months,

messages from the communications committee will encourage understanding of

and support for the work of our task forces. It is through this work that we

accomplish Faith Action's purpose: to address the root causes of challenges to

social justice.

With nine months of such sharing now behind us, the communications committee

is taking on a complementary task: listening. We have questions for our member

units. Are we telling you what you really need to know? Too much? Not

enough? Is the work of Faith Action truly relevant to the work of your unit? What

could be better? What other social justice issues are important to the members

of your unit?

We will do our listening via focus groups -- two members of the communications

committee meeting (virtually) with two to four members of each unit. The units

will be represented by their clergy (or CEO of lay units), their steering committee

representatives, and one or two other individuals chosen by the unit leader. We

anticipate taking several months to schedule and complete these focus group

sessions. The feedback from them will be incorporated into the work of the

communication committee as we go along. If you have input for your unit to

share in its focus group session, please notify your pastor/CEO and/or your unit's

steering committee representative. We look forward to listening and learning.
