CANA Initiative #5- Common Good

CANA(Convening, Advocating, Networking, and Acting) has a group of five major initiatives to spearhead in the next year. These first five areas can be viewed as a bit of the origin story of CANA over the last nine months, but were clearly defined by participants at the CANA kick off meeting in November 2013 at the Washington Cathedral. The fifth initiative is:

  • Engage in serious dialog and action toward finding new ways for churches and christians to engage in racial and cultural differences
  • Create Church/Community partnerships for action
  • Coordinate training and resources amongst activist and training organizations
