Webcast 2017
Join us for the 2017 Legislative Advocacy Issues Briefing Webinar to prepare for the upcoming in-district visits with the new Congress.

This year we are focusing on “in-district” visits by Catholics during the Congressional Recess week of February 20-24, and to prepare for those visits, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, CRS and other partner organizations are hosting a free Legislative Advocacy Issues Briefing Webinar on February 7, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

This legislative advocacy event is in lieu of the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering (CSMG). So join Catholics across the nation and learn how you can be an effective advocate at home in your Senators’ and Representatives’ district offices during the Congressional Recess week of February 20-24. You can help us in ongoing efforts to raise our collective voices to defend and empower the most vulnerable.
