Advocacy, Catholics Confront Global Poverty

Immigration Reform Update Webcast

Please join Catholic Relief Services and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for an online Catholics Confront Global Poverty discussion Thursday, Oct. 13, from 1-1:30 p.m.

Reserve your place here.

Background: Now that Congress is considering changes to our nation’s immigration system, we have a real opportunity to address why people migrate and the humanitarian consequences of our current policies. The Church understands the major reasons people migrate to the United States are to escape poverty, unemployment, and violence.  Widespread poverty and unemployment in countries such as El Salvador and Mexico have been caused in part by policies that have neglected the needs of poor and vulnerable people and investments in rural areas.
