Laudato Sí Week
Laudato Si’ Week began as a way to celebrate the anniversary of Pope Francis’ world-changing papal encyclical letter, “Laudato Si’: On Care For Our Common Home.” Pope Francis finished writing the letter on May 24, 2015.
The Global Catholic Climate Movement is observing the anniversary with a week long series of events. You can participate in particular events or all of them by clicking HERE. Click on the days/topics that interest you and beneath the pictures of the presenters you will find a link to register.
The For The People Act has been introduced in both chambers as H.R. 1 in the House of Representatives and as S.1 in the Senate. In the Joint Address to Congress, President Biden voiced vocal support for the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and asked the Senate to pass them right away. With the bill just beginning its way through the Senate process now is a great time to contact your senators asking them to support the bill.
Video from John Lewis Voting Rights Day is available HERE.
