Resolved, That the General Convention request the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance to consider a budget allocation of $100,000 for the implementation of this Resolution.


Proposer: Standing Commission on National Concerns

Explanation:

The Episcopal Network for Economic Justice is a membership organization that arose out of the work that followed the church's implementation of GC Resolution 1988,"Taking Action for Economic Justice." The Network consists of individual, congregational and diocesan members. Members work both within the church and in interfaith coalitions to promote economic justice in their respective communities. The ENEJ, with some support from The Episcopal Church, has provided educational materials, technical assistance and ministry models to Episcopalians engaged in a broad array of economic justice activities. These activities include the formation of credit unions and other wealth-creating programs, organizing and advocating for economic justice and supporting local worker justice campaigns.

Such funding will provide much needed resources to help ENEJ assist the church in rising to the challenge of the current economic crisis, while at the same time providing a stronger partnership with this organization that has arisen from the grass roots of The Episcopal Church.
