A MESSAGE FROM THE USCCB – Justice, Peace and Human Development
The U.S. is a leading producer of vaccines, and we have a moral responsibility to help end the pandemic by sharing vaccines with our brothers and sisters around the world. In order to end the pandemic here, we must end it everywhere. Tell Congress to act now!
Recently, the U.S. Bishops commended President Biden on committing 500 million of the 1 billion vaccines shared by the G7 countries. The inequalities in vaccine distribution are staggering. Each of us as Catholics can do our part by calling upon Congress to support President Biden’s initial step by leading the international community to fund vaccine supplies and distribution for low- and middle-income countries.
We have a responsibility to listen to our sisters and brothers in other countries who are crying out for an end to this pandemic, especially those most vulnerable to the virus. By helping others abroad, we also help ourselves here at home. Lift your voice today to protect the health and safety of our global family!
