Public policy coalition names new director
Tammy Walhof was recently hired as executive director of the Lutheran Coalition for Public Policy in Minnesota (LCPPM). Walhof succeeds the Rev. Mark Peters, who announced, in April, his resignation as LCPPM director, a position he had held for 18 years.
LCPPM, a state policy office governed by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), seeks to engage people of faith in support of peace, justice, and care for all of God’s creation, as stated in the group’s mission statement. Upon accepting the LCPPM position, Walhof said, “I’m passionate about justice for poor and hungry people, and care of creation! This position is a great fit, and offers me an exciting new opportunity to live out my calling, working for justice in God’s world.”
Walhof, a member of the Christian Reformed Church, will transition the second week of January from her position as senior regional organizer for Bread for the World (BFW) in several Upper Midwest and Plains states, including Minnesota. She has worked for BFW for over 18 years.
