Advocacy means supporting and defending a cause that you believe in.
Advocates work for justice by impacting the public conversation about issues
affecting the poor and vulnerable with the hopes their efforts will lead
to positive and just change.
Since 1910, Catholic Charities USA has served as a national advocate
for the most vulnerable in our nation, guided by the basic belief
in the inherent dignity of the human person.
Our country must demonstrate a priority to ensure dignity in all aspects of public policy.
The charitable work of the Church to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and support pregnant women and their families leads us to engage in advocacy to end systemic poverty, homelessness and hunger and to work for positive change in education, health care, services for women with unplanned pregnancies, the elderly, persons with disabilities and support for the poor and vulnerable around the world.
