Your Voice Makes a Difference: Tips & Tools for Effective Advocacy

Background: Congress will be on recess from August 5 through September 6, 2013, which makes it the perfect time to raise your voice on behalf of our brothers and sisters who live in poverty. We know that global poverty is a disease with a cure, and your voice makes a difference! Increase your impact this August by meeting with your Representative and Senators during the recess. It’s the most effective way to sway your members of Congress if they have not yet made up their mind on important issues such as immigration reform, the Farm Bill, and funding for poverty-focused international assistance.

Join us for:

  • An opportunity to hear about the Church’s ongoing work to defend the life and dignity of people living in poverty throughout the world through advocacy, and learn tips and tools that you can use in your advocacy efforts;

  • Ask questions and engage in dialogue with experts on the issues; and,

  • Ideas on how Catholics in the United States, through the Catholics Confront Global Poverty initiative, can make a difference for our brothers and sisters who live in poverty. 

For more information:

  • Refer to the latest Catholics Confront Global Poverty Action Alerts.

  • Review the latest news and resources on the International Justice, Peace, and Human Development website of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
