Thanks to a recent $2 million gift from the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Network Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization founded by religious sisters more than 50 years ago, will expand its lobbying portfolio on Capitol Hill to include climate advocacy.
The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and Network describe this new “collaboration in mission” as emerging from their shared commitment to “confront the existential threat of our time that is climate change,” according to a joint press release issued by the two groups.
