Come to a gathering of young people of faith raising their voices in “sincere dialogue and with anxious interest seeking the common good.”
The California Catholic Conference (CCC) invites Catholic youth from all over California who are interested in exercising their “faithful citizenship” in their state’s Capitol. The CCC welcomes all who are interested in meeting with elected officials to speak on behalf of those who are poor, vulnerable or voiceless.
This one-day event will include a Mass celebrated at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, information sessions, visits with legislators and a time to debrief with fellow students.
To register, visit: http://www.cacatholic.org, or contact Linda Wanner, 916-313-4017, firstname.lastname@example.org

If you live in a different state, check with the Catholic Conference of your own state bishops -- they should have an advocacy day at your state's capital.
