Important Action Alert: Global Poverty
The USCCB, Catholic Relief Services, and LCWR are asking us to consider taking action to maintain the levels of life-saving, poverty-focused international assistance for FY 2012 as passed by the Senate Appropriations Committee and to oppose any amendments that would cut poverty-focused international assistance. The alert is for all of us, but it is especially important for Pennsylvanians to contact their senators to urge them to support the Senate Appropriations Committee funding levels for fiscal year 2012 Poverty Focused International Assistance. In fact, Pennsylvanians, if you contact only one person, you are encouraged to contact Senator Toomey. Click here for more information and the Action Alert on the Catholic Relief Services website.
