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.

Catholic Charities November 2020 Ballot Measure Endorsements

Catholic Charities advocates for people who are economically disadvantaged, vulnerable, and marginalized in our society. Our advocacy springs from our mission, Catholic social teaching, and our values of dignity, equity, justice and the common good of all. We urge everyone to vote on Nov. 3, 2020 in the General Election. Catholic Charities endorses six state and local measures on the November ballot.

Census 2020

Every 10 years, the federal government is required to count every person residing in the U.S. through a national census. There is a lot at stake with Census 2020. Standing up for the count is one of the most powerful things you can do to support yourself, your family, and your community. Learn more about the 2020 Census.

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.
