What We Do
In all our work we promote justice, peace, reconciliation and dignity for individuals and communities.
We support people in need through our humanitarian and development work. We promote justice and human rights through our advocacy work. We empower member churches in their gospel witness and work for the unity of Christians.
We support communities in need and uphold the rights of every individual, regardless of their status, ethnicity, religion and gender.
We advocate for justice and peace, locally and globally, focusing on human rights, gender justice, climate justice, interfaith and peace.
We are committed to strengthening the Lutheran communion's theological capacity, promoting gender justice, and doing theology that addresses the contemporary challenges of a religiously diverse society and climate crisis.
