Outreach and Social Justice

Important!  Advocate for those being left on the fringe of our society:
Senators Lindsay Graham and Richard Durbin have introduced a new bill: The Dream Act of 2017 (S. 1615). It is a bipartisan effort to protect immigrant children who entered the U.S. as children and know America as their only home. The Catholic bishops of the U.S. have asked Catholics to support this bill, “As Catholics, we have long supported DREAMERS as we believe in protecting the dignity of every human being, especially that of children.”  Go to https://justiceforimmigrants.org/category/statements/  to write your letter today!
