CSA Making Its Voice Heard

July 20, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

The Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes has recently been signatory to several letters.

  • CSA is one of 32 national faith-based organizations and congregations who signed a letter, through NETWORK, to be delivered TODAY, July 20 to the Senate asking them to provide sufficient funding in the next COVID-19 package to safeguard two foundational aspects of our democracy: the general election in November and the decennial Census count.
  • Through Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility we signed a letter to the Executive Office for Immigration Review concerning the rule restricting the ability of refugees to seek asylum in the United States.
  • Letters to Fed Ex, NIKE, and PepsiCo asked these companies to terminate their business and public relationships with the National Football League's Washington D.C. franchise until they changed their offensive "Redskins" name. 
  • In line with JPIC's commitment to protect water, a letter was sent to Senate Majority Leader McConnell, Minority Leader Schumer, Chairman Barrasso and Ranking Member Carper opposing the "Voluntary Water Partnership for Distressed Communities Act. Despite the title the bill will serve coerce communities into privatizing their public water systems.
