Call to Action to Care for Our Common Home

CCL’s Catholic Action Team invites you to our very first virtual CCL Catholic Conference entitled "Call to Action to Care for Our Common Home."   Catholics are a large demographic in Congress.  About 30% of Congress self identifies as Catholic as well as President Biden.  Our chance of passing fee and dividend legislation has never been better!  We hope that connecting with Catholic members of Congress through their faith will seal the deal.   In May, we’ll celebrate the sixth anniversary of the release of Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’.  His encyclical letter “Laudato Si’ of the Holy Father Francis On Care for our Common Home” inspired us to hold our conference entitled “Call to Action to Care for Our Common Home” on May 15th, 2021.

 

Who should join us:   Everyone!  Especially CCL volunteers with Catholic members of Congress!  We made it easy for you to find out if your member of Congress is Catholic here.

Where:  On Zoom.  Once you register, we’ll send you the link to join close to the date of the conference. 

Registration:  You can register for the conference here.

We have inspiring speakers lined up for the event!  Bishop John Stowe from the Diocese of Lexington will be speaking with us live and we’ll also hear from Bishop Robert McElroy from the Diocese of San Diego.  Jose Aguto from Catholic Climate Covenant will also be a keynote speaker and we’re working on getting at least one member of Congress to speak about how their faith plays a role in their decision making in Congress.  We also have informative breakout sessions to help you connect with Catholics in your Congressional District and gain Grasstop endorsements to show your Catholic MOC’s that Catholics in their districts want them to support the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act
