How BREAD Works

BREAD uses a four-step process to surface and win issues of justice: 

1) We listen to our members in 1-1’s, house meetings and town hall meetings in order to surface community problems for research and action. The listening process also serves to enlist more people in justice ministry networks in congregations;
2) Then we research the problems to identify workable solutions;
3) We gather a large number of people, in order to show our power and get the attention of a public official to work on the solution;
4) Lastly, we follow-through on the public commitments in order to ensure that there is action to address the problem.

How do people get involved in the work of BREAD?

People can be involved in BREAD’s work at many levels: researching problems, raising money in the support drive, enhancing the justice teaching in their congregations. The base level of the justice work in BREAD is to: 1) bring three people with you to the Nehemiah Action (May 6, 2013) and 2) attend two other meetings to help prepare for the Annual Nehemiah Meeting: the rally (April 8, 2013) and the Annual Meeting (November 12, 2012).
