The Coalition of Religious Communicators Associations began almost 50 years ago as the Coalition of Religious Press Associations, advocates for the public interest expressed through religious communications.
We work to shape fair public policy on behalf of religious communicators. Efforts include national lobbying with the U.S. Postal Service and the Federal Communications Commission.
For more information, please contact CRCA Convener Joe Thoma, at 407-341-6615, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
