Nuns Drive for Faith, Family & Fairness

Postby sagan » Sun Jun 10, 2012 12:55 pm

Catholic Sisters across the country work every day with people struggling at the economic margins. Meanwhile, the House of Representative has approved the “Ryan Budget” – which will harm millions of the people they serve.

NETWORK has announced an exciting new venture: a bus tour through nine states to highlight the work of Catholic Sisters, meet the people they serve, and learn about the harm that would be caused by these federal budget cuts.

“Nuns on the Bus: Nuns Drive for Faith, Family and Fairness” will make stops in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia during the two-week tour beginning June 18. We’ll visit social service agencies and offices of members of Congress, highlighting our opposition, as well as the U.S. Catholic bishops' opposition, to the Ryan budget that passed the House.

You can check out the news about this trip from the ... ssues.html">New York Times and CNN.

And you can also look for information in our">press release.

In the meantime, here is a preliminary plan of where the bus will be. (More details to come!)

June 18, 2012- July 2, 2012 SCHEDULE
