Social Justice Advocacy

We work toward systemic policy change that will have a positive impact on the people we serve. We champion thoughtful legislation while building relationships and influencing peer organizations, policymakers, and funders. We educate the public about the critical work we are doing in our communities and the important problems we are working on solving collectively.

Our dedication to the most vulnerable among us propels us to advocate for and seek innovative, evidence-based solutions to our community’s most pressing challenges – homelessness, aging in isolation, generational poverty, the achievement gap, HIV/AIDS, inequality, and immigration. Tough issues we face with determination, tenacity, and collaborative problem solving with those we serve. It’s why so many industry experts join us in our drive toward social justice and community resilience.

Census 2020

Thank you for participating with us to ensure that local vulnerable populations of all ages, races, ethnicities, those housed and unhoused, citizens and non-citizens alike were included in the 2020 census count. The census determines federal funding for public services that benefit everyone, and affects our representation in Congress.

Voter Access

Voting is an essential right and privilege for American citizens, yet vulnerable individuals – like many of those served by Catholic Charities - often experience challenges registering to vote and casting their ballot. Learn more about resources to make voting accessible and safe for all during the November 3, 2020 General Election in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
