We advocate, educate and organize Catholics throughout the country.

LGBTQ Equality

As Catholics, our faith teaches us to honor the inherent dignity of all people because everyone is made in the image of God. Sadly, too many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are still treated as second-class citizens. In much of the US, a person can be fired from a job, refused service in a business or denied housing simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We must stand up for basic human dignity.

Protecting Democracy & Voting Rights: A Conversation with Catholic Activists

Powerful institutions and political leaders are working to rigging the system and erecting racist obstacles to voting and full participation in American life. We know that voter suppression is a sin. Silence is complicity. Join our panel on Friday, October 14 as we discuss how Catholics can act to protect democracy and voting rights.

Eucharist isn’t a weapon

Please heed the pastoral guidance of Cardinal Luis Ladaria of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, who warned in a letter to your conference that using the Eucharist to police pro-choice Catholic politicians would further divide the church and send the “misleading” message that abortion is the only urgent issue addressed by Catholic social teaching.
