Patricia Hartig, director of advocacy and public support, will be a guest at the White House on Friday, October 28 as part of a day‐long event with other leaders from Lutheran health and human service organizations across the country. Lutheran Services in America, which helped organize the event, expects more than 160 participants from almost 30 states and over 50 different Lutheran organizations. The leaders are coming to Washington to meet with Obama Administration officials; attend issue‐specific sessions with policy makers; and discuss questions, concerns, and recommendations about social service provision. Participants also will participate in a White House tour. Hartig says she hopes to learn more about the Obama Administration’s priorities and raise key issues facing Lutheran Social Services and the communities it supports.
