Catholic Relief Services: Please Write Your Congressperson!
Please write your member of Congress on a number of hot topics.
Check current action alerts at: http://tinyurl.com/crs-action-center
This request comes from Catholic Relief Services in coordination with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Many items of upcoming legislation have moral dimensions, e.g. arms control, global poverty, immigration reform.
The website of CRS is sooooo easy to use -- will only take you 5 minutes to send your own representatives an email. If you are unfamiliar with an issue, all the policy statements and summaries are right there so you can understand WHY the Bishops' have a particular position.
The Bishops always apply Catholic doctrine to current issues -- they are not partisan. Their faith is informing their politics, not the other way around!
I just sent an email to my Congressperson regarding international nuclear arms control and global poverty.
