Stand up and be the voice for those who can’t. Advocacy is an activity that seeks to influence decisions within the public arena.

The Diocesan Social Action Office looks to support and make recommendations on issues that adhere to Catholic Social Teaching. We work with senators and representatives on both the federal and state levels.

Advocacy relates to issues to the general public. Advocacy is not a political campaign and is not a statement on the representative or senator or respective political parties. It is issue-oriented and done on a more personal level than what a political campaign would do.
