more easy social action

Visit the Legislative Action Center from our friends at NETWORK, the Catholic Social Justice Lobby in DC started by women religious.

It's too late for CAFTA. But you can help the children of undocumented immigrants to dream the impossible American Dream by asking your congresspersons to support the DREAM bill (which increases their access to higher education). Among other things.

The Legislative Action Center makes it easy - you just put in your zip code and it figures out who your Senator and Representatives are. You can write your own letter or, if you are especially lazy on a hot summer day, use their ready made e-mails.

It's a great resource for political activism rooted in Catholic Social Teaching.
