In addition to the Advocacy Day bills, which represent respect life; education, children and families; and social and economic justice, we advocate on many more issues. We provide testimony and work behind the scenes to advocate with legislators on respect for life, children and families, disabilities, education, care for creation, immigration, human trafficking, justice reform, poverty, and more.
