The Catholic program elevates the voices of Catholic social justice leaders in the public square and in public policy through media and advocacy. By partnering with faith-based activists, theologians, clergy, women religious, and diverse lay leaders, we aspire to bring centuries of Catholic teaching on social justice and human dignity into current debates over political and moral issues.
