The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance was founded in 2000 on the principle that the more we can speak and act together, the stronger our impact for justice will be.

The WCC Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance brings together a broad constituency of participating organizations, covering a wide range of church families (Roman Catholic, Evangelical, Orthodox and traditions originating in the Reformation) and types of organization (church-based humanitarian relief and development agencies, church-based advocacy organizations, churches, national and regional councils of churches, religious orders, and other groups).
