Season of Creation: Sept 13

September 13, 2021
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator


August 26th was Women's Equality Day in the US, a day that commemorates the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, granting women the right to vote. President Biden issued a Proclamation on Women's Equality Day, 2021 stating, "...we recognize our duty to continue that fight to ensure that our daughters can enjoy the same rights and opportunities as our sons."

In June of 2020, the UN released a report highlighting the importance of policies that integrate gender, climate, and security. "Gender inequality, climate vulnerability, and state fragility are strongly interlinked –we know, for example, that countries with higher values in one of these areas tend to score higher in the other two", said UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner.

Laudato Si Goals with Response of the Cry of the Poor highlighted




“Let us keep in mind the principle of subsidiarity, which grants freedom to develop the capabilities present at every level of society, while also demanding a greater sense of responsibility for the common good from those who wield greater power.”
- Laudato Si' 196

CSA is a member of Seventh Generation Interfaith Coalition for Responsible Investment (SGI). SGI is a coalition of faith and values-driven institutional investors who view the management of their investments as a powerful catalyst for social change. By investing in socially responsible enterprises and choosing ethical banking and insurance companies, SGI members use the economy to advocate for their values, such as the value of resilience. 

The 2021 SGI Conference, which is themed Resilience: Building a Just & Equitable Economy for All, will be held virtually October 12th from 4:30-6:30 pm. Their "panel of company, investor, and labor representatives will offer their perspectives on how to implement positive change from the learnings and challenges of 2020, dismantle systems that perpetuate gender and racial inequities, and build an economy that serves all people and ensures the dignity of all workers." For more information contact SGI Board Member, Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA or click the button below.

That countries throughout the world may see women and girls as God does; as daughters beautiful, strong, worthy of respect, and deserving of equal economic opportunities, we pray.
