Additional information: 

We support local church and Presbytery initiatives, many in ecumenical coalitions. A particular area of concern right now are the rights of immigrant children in our US immigration system.

The engagement of youth within the church and as agents of change in the community varies widely from one congregation to another.

A major focus of the Presbyterian Church USA is to foster earth care congregations, including addressing climate change.
