The mission of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation ministry is to explore CSA's distinct contribution to the ongoing, nonviolent transformation of the world towards peace, justice and ecology. This work embraces the efforts of sisters, associates, co-workers and others who share the CSA vision. We live out the mission to bring about systemic change by using the lens of nonviolence to focus on the issues of women, children, health care, globalization (especially as it affects Latin America), seamless ethic of life.

Pray for Peaceful & Just Elections

September 15, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

We The People

We invite you share in a simple five minutes of individual contemplative silence at whatever time you choose each Tuesday leading up to election day.

Want to take another action for peaceful and just elections? Each week, we’ll provide an action item - some will be much easier to do than others - participate in the actions as you are able.

We Pray

Today we pray for young voters to engage in the political process as they will confront the consequences of the decisions we make today.

Learn About Absentee Voting

Regulations about absentee ballots and early in-person voting vary from state to state. This site links directly to the absentee regulations for each state: https://politicalcharge.org/2020/04/10/how-to-vote-by-mail-in-every-single-state/
In Wisconsin, every absentee ballot is required by law to come with a certified postage paid envelope and in many cases there are drop boxes at the local government center, so you can drop it off without having to worry about it getting “lost in the mail.”
