TOWN HALL

Catholic Advocacy Day is Wednesday

 

Join Catholics from across Maryland to speak out on behalf of life, education, and human dignity during our annual statewide Catholic Advocacy Day. 

Participating is easy - it takes just a few minutes - and makes a big impact with our state elected officials. We will email everything you need on Wednesday, but you can preview the topics below.

CATHOLIC ADVOCACY DAY

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. 

 

Advocacy Day Action Alerts

Oppose enshrining abortion in the Maryland Constitution.

This is the most far-reaching of egregious bills on life introduced this session.

 

Support bonding between incarcerated mothers and their babies.

Certain incarcerated women who are pregnant or newly parenting would be able to stay short-term in a pre-release center to bond with and care for their babies.

Fully fund BOOST scholarships.

BOOST provides educational equity for low-income children to attend Catholic or other non-public schools and has benefited thousands of children.

Ban untraceable "ghost" guns.

Prohibit a person from purchasing, receiving, selling, offering to sell, or transferring an “unfinished frame or receiver" and other provisions to prevent the use of untraceable firearms.

Care for creation by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building climate equity within communities disproportionately affected by climate change.
