Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal delegation representing the church and its policies at the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women gathered on March 22 for an advocacy training designed to empower delegates to take the message home to their dioceses, churches and communities, and to engage others in the effort to “leave no one behind.”As part of the exercise designed to take the issues discussed at the UNCSW down to national and local level, delegates were encouraged to choose an issue that particularly resonated with them, why it’s important and, in this case, what they would like to see policymakers do about it.The point was “to think about the big issues in the local context,” said Jayce Hafner, the Episcopal Church’s domestic policy analyst who works out of the Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations, who led the training at the Hampton Inn near the United Nations building in midtown Manhattan.Advocacy, Hafner explained is about researching an issue, getting to know people affected by the issue, and about building and maintaining relationships with policymakers and their staffs.“You don’t have to be an expert to be a good advocate for an issue,” she said, adding that Episcopalians can look to the Episcopal Public Policy Network as a resource.Half of the delegates representing dioceses throughout the Episcopal Church said they already are engaged in advocacy at the local and/or national levels.For example, the Rev. Connie Sanchez, of the Diocese of Honduras, shared an example of how the Episcopal Church and its ecumenical partners have worked for years on behalf of building awareness and protecting the rights of people living with HIV in Honduras.Women from across the Episcopal Church and throughout the Anglican Communion representing more than 20 countries have been gathered in New York for the 60th session of the UNCSW March 14-­­­­­­­24.The theme for the 60th annual UNCSW has focused on “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development.” It follows the 2015 endorsement by world leaders of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes 17 new Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets that aim to end poverty, combat inequalities and promote prosperity while protecting the environment. The SDGs build upon the eight Millennium Development Goals adopted in 2000.“This year’s UNCSW has been all about the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Main, following the March 22 advocacy training, adding that “leave no one behind” has been a constant refrain. “As civil society we are being urged to ensure that implementation happens on the national level.”As Main pointed out at the start of the two-week commission: “What happens at the UNCSW is only as good as what happens at home.”The Episcopal Church is one of a number of “civil society,” meaning non-government and non-profit organizations, and individuals engaged in advocacy and activist work, represented at the United Nations.In addition to the official Episcopal delegations, an official group representing the Anglican Communion and many more women and men traveled to New York representing Anglican Women’s Empowerment, Episcopal Church Women, the International Anglican Women’s Network, the Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal Diocese of New York attending offsite and parallel events and panels.Events included an offsite panel focused on sustainable development tools for women and girls; a speech by the secretary general of the Anglican Communion focused on how women can work together to change the fate of women and girls in their communities; and a presentation by an expert on women’s contributions to peacemaking  talked about women claiming their places in decision-making spaces.  Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preached during a special Eucharist on March 17.Last fall, the Episcopal Church submitted a statement to the UNCSW identifying four ongoing challenges and asking member states “to swiftly adopt and implement legislation on the following urgent needs”: to enable women to access power and decision-making positions; to foster women’s and girls’ economic empowerment and independence; to eradicate violence against women and girls; and to provide preferential treatment to marginalized women and girls.The presiding bishop determined the Episcopal Church’s official advocacy priorities based on General Convention and Executive Council resolutions and the church’s position on issues such as human trafficking and gender-based violence in relation to conversations currently underway at the U.N.Jennifer Allen, a delegate from the Diocese of Kansas, said in an interview with Episcopal News Service at the Church Center at the start of the two-week commission that the Episcopal Church’s four priorities fit with her lay ministry both at home and in Kenya, where she works on issues of women’s empowerment, inequality, access to healthcare and elimination of gender-based violence.After participating in more than a weeks’ worth of advocacy, panel discussions and other events, Allen said she’d come to realize that gender equity is a component of each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and necessary for the success of the 2030 development agenda.On a more immediate, practical level, she said, when she returns to Kansas, where in addition to being involved in the church, she’s a registered nurse, she will look to leverage her and grow her network because this is work that she cannot do alone.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

CFPB Director Provides Update on Protection Practices

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / CFPB Director Provides Update on Protection Practices CFPB 2020-02-06 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: CFPB In the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) semiannual report to Congress, CFPB Director Kathleen Kranginger outlined the Bureau’s focus and advancements. According to Kraninger, she is focusing on two areas: “encouraging saving and unleashing innovation wherever appropriate and possible,” with the focus on giving power to consumers when choosing financial products.“As I have said before, the Bureau cannot be everywhere, with everyone, at every transaction,” Kraninger said in her opening statement. “Therefore, empowering consumers to help themselves, protect their own interests, and choose financial products and services that best fit their needs is essential to preventing consumer harm and building financial well-being.”During the hearing, House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters was critical of Kraninger’s stance on the Bureau, as Kraninger herself reversed the Bureau’s course and agreed that the “for-cause” removal provision, which states that the president can only remove CFPB’s director for “inefficiency, neglect of duty or malfeasance in office,” does violate the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers, according to a brief filed earlier this year in the high court by U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco and in letters sent to Congress.“You’ve made it harder for your own agency to crack down on abusive acts by financial institutions,” Waters said. “With this policy statement, you have made it clear that under your watch bad actors will come first and consumers will come last.”Rep. Patrick McHenry, on the other hand, praised Kraninger’s position on the Bureau’s structure, saying he believes the structure will be found to be unconstitutional and that Congress should be prepared to step in and restructure the agency.In the case of Seila Law LLC V. Consumer Protection Bureau, Seila Law alleges that the structure of the agency grants too much power to its director. According to court papers, given the CFPB’s broad law enforcement powers, the fact that the president may only remove the director of the CFPB “for inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office” is unconstitutional. In May, the CFPB beat Seila Law before a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.The U.S. House of Representatives alleging that the case has no bearing on the constitutionality of the Bureau, and as such, the Supreme Court should resolve this case without deciding on the constitutionality of the Bureau.
