One Action

We suggest you identify one action you will do this week to help support the Catholic Campaign Against Global Poverty.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and Catholic Relief Services (CRS) invite Catholics throughout the U.S. to join this campaign as we advocate for U.S. policies that foster economic and social development for people living in poverty throughout the world.

The campaign focuses on three areas of U.S. economic policy:

* Trade: Shaping U.S. trade policies so that overcoming poverty and promoting human development are central priorities;

* Aid: Supporting effective programs that foster long-term development and empowerment of the poor.

* Debt: Eliminating the debt of the poorest countries in ways that reduce poverty and promote human dignity.
