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.

Justice for Immigrants

January 13, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

The work on behalf of refugees and immigrants continues into 2020. We must continue advocating for asylum seekers at the border, DACA and TPS holders, and for the protection of undocumented communities from aggressive ICE raids. This summer the Supreme Court will announce their ruling on DACA and thousands of DACA recipients could be in danger of losing their status.

I offer two resources from the Ignatian Solidarity Network and one from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for your further study, action and prayer.

  2. Learn about: Kino Border Initiative, a bi national  organization sponsored by the U.S. and Mexican Jesuits that works in the area of migration, located in Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. KBI engages migration through direct humanitarian  assistance and accompaniment with migrants; social and pastoral education with communities on both sides of the border; and participation in collaborative networks that engage in research and advocacy to  transform local, regional, and national immigration policies.
