Nuns’ bus tour protesting proposed federal budget cuts rolls into Cleveland
FPL provided media support for the “Nuns on the Bus” tour
A nine-state bus trip by Catholic nuns opposing proposed cuts in federal programs for the poor, stopped in Cleveland Tuesday to visit a West Side soup kitchen and to drum up support for their crusade.
The trip, on a brightly decorated touring coach with red letters, “Nuns on the bus,” is stopping at life-line agencies run by nuns to highlight the work they do for the poor, the sick and the disenfranchised.
“We’re getting educated about what the real needs are for real people,” Sister Simone Campbell told the editorial board of The Plain Dealer. “We have seen nothing but responsible programs since we left Des Moines.”
