Catholics Advocating For Change

Some residents of New Jersey meet with a congressional aide (far right) at the 2009 Social Ministry Gathering in Washington, DC. Catholics from across the country were asked to urge their elected officials to increase funding for foreign aid. Catholic Relief Services co-sponsored the event. With advocacy a main component of our work in the United States, CRS staff often testifiy on Capitol Hill to address the root causes of global poverty, conflict, and health pandemics.

CRS works in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and other Catholic organizations to develop public policy positions. Above all, our work seeks to protect the inherent human dignity of all people.  Photo by Jim Stipe/CRS
