June 1, 7pm: NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus is coming to Charleston to support common sense immigration reform, Circular Congregational Church, 150 Meeting St.
The presentation will be followed by a short walk to the entrance of the Old Slave Mart Museum.
These inspiring women were welcomed last year by thousands of well-wishers as they traveled from state to state in support of federal budget priorities that address the needs of struggling families. This year, they are traveling across the United States – 6,500 miles over 15 states – 53 events in 40 cities – standing with immigrants, faith-filled activists, and Catholic Sisters who serve immigrant communities.
Their message is clear: We need commonsense immigration policies that reflect our values, not our fears. Congress must act now!
NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus is a campaign of NETWORK, A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby which was founded by 47 Catholic Sisters more than 40 years ago.
