    Contact Your Representatives Today

    Today, Catholic Charities leaders from across the country are descending on Capitol Hill to give a voice to the poor and vulnerable clients that they serve. These leaders will be talking with members of Congress about the challenges and opportunities that they see in their communities every day. Please join us by taking action and telling your members of Congress that you stand in unity with Catholic Charities on supporting the BRIDGE Act to protect individuals eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) from deportation; not repealing without sensibly replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA); and adopting a budget framework that replaces sequestration, protects low-income entitlement programs such as SNAP and Medicaid, and maintains protection around funding for programs focused on people in poverty.
