Advocate

Your Voice Matters

Advocacy is one of the most effective ways to ease human suffering and end global poverty. When an unjust policy or system is changed because of our collective advocacy efforts, millions of people living in poverty around the world are able to lead dignified lives and thrive. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and Catholic Relief Services (CRS) regularly raise the Church’s concerns about global poverty issues with members of the U.S. Congress, the White House and other government officials.

We invite you to pray and learn more about the global issues affecting our brothers and sisters around the world. Together, our faith in action can change existing unjust policies and create new policies that benefit the common good.

Join our campaigns and be part of the movement to lead the way to a more just world by lifting your voice and taking action!
