My Catholic faith calls me to not only help those in need through doing service or giving money, and also by working to identify and address the causes of why people are in situations of need.
Whatever my legal status, I have the right and ability to make my voice heard by elected officials.
The religious/cultural traditions that I celebrate (e.g. Marian devotion, saints’ days, el Día de los Muertos, etc.) inspire me to help address issues that impact my community.
The Word of God in Scripture calls me and others to love God and neighbor by caring for those who are poor and vulnerable in my community.
My family and community are connected to and responsible for the wider global human family because we are all part of God's family.
