The Task Force and its Work
In response to our baptismal promise to strive for justice and peace among all people, the Diocesan Global Goals Task Force is charged to create a Diocesan-wide movement to promote awareness of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to help congregations develop plans to assist in their achievement. The Sustainable Development Goals are a worldwide effort to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and combat climate change; the SDGs build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals. The Global Goals Task Force encourages congregations to develop international partnerships and supports such work through Diocesan Matching Grants.

The Global Goals are an agenda for justice. If you are passionate about international development and have a heart for the poor, please get involved. Global Goals Task Force members are available to serve as resources for developing your international partnership, fundraising plans, or educational programs. We have a deep bench of talented preachers who could serve as a guest preacher.
