Powerful institutions and political leaders are working to rig the system and erect racist obstacles to voting and full participation in American life. We know that voter suppression is a sin. Silence is complicity.
Join our virtual panel on 1 p.m. ET Friday, October 14 as we discuss how Catholics can act to protect democracy and voting rights.
“Catholics must not be silent in the face of growing threats to voters, fair elections and democratic principles,” the leaders of Catholic social justice organizations and Catholic university presidents wrote in a powerful statement released last week. “Our faith tradition teaches that every person deserves equal access to participate fully in our democracy.”
The conversation will include some of the leaders who endorsed this statement, including Jeanné Lewis, interim CEO at Faith in Public Life; John Gehring, Catholic Program Director at Faith in Public Life, who will be moderating, Joan Neal, Deputy Executive Director & Chief Equity Officer at NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice; José-Arnulfo Cabrera, Co-Executive Director of Programs and Policy at the Young Latino Network; Milton Javier Bravo, Vice President for Mission, Values and Inclusion at Edgewood College; and Sister Bridget Bearss, Associate Director for Transformative Justice, Leadership Conference of Women Religious.
