As people of faith our call is clear. Scripture instructs us to act with mercy and justice and to care for our neighbors. We live out these commandments not just as individuals in our local communities, but as a society through our government. The yearly debate over the federal budget is – at its heart –a struggle for our nation’s moral conscience.
This week hundreds of faith advocates will be gathering in the Nation’s Capital at Ecumenical Advocacy Days. Together they will carry a message to Congress, asking that our national leaders defend people struggling to live in dignity by funding programs that protect vulnerable populations here and abroad.
Join them in lifting your voice - Call on your elected officials to pass a faithful budget!
We must stand with those among us whose need is great and work together as a community to re-arrange our national priorities to focus on the common good. Together we can urge Congress to show their commitment to these ideals by enacting legislation that enhances the well-being of all Americans.
Call on Congress to craft a federal budget that protects the common good, values each individual and his or her livelihood, and helps lift the burden on the poor, rather than increasing it while shielding the wealthiest from any additional responsibility.
