Poverty Education and Advocacy Team (PEAT)

This ministry team partners with the ministry team of Clair Memorial United Methodist Church. Our mission statement is: “to impact lives and inspire life through education and advocacy for economic justice for all.” An annual forum seeks to help attendees from our Churches and the community to grow in their sensitivity to and understanding of the systemic aspects of economic justice with the intention that they should in turn educate themselves and advocate and partner with others for the betterment of life for the people of Omaha. Monthly meetings are held at Clair Memorial UMC on the third Tuesday of the month at 5:00 pm.
