Catholics call for continued work for justice

A number of Catholic organizations, including Jesuit Refugee Service/USA, Catholic Climate Covenant, and the Ignatian Solidarity Network responded to the 2020 election with statements renewing the call to continue work to uphold the dignity of all people and creation. 

The leaders of three Catholic organizations working on the U.S.-Mexico border, Rev. Sean Carroll, S.J., executive director for Kino Border Initiative, Sr. Norma Pimentel, M.J., executive director for Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, and Dylan Corbett, executive director for Hope Border Institute, echoed JRS/USA’s calls to protect the right to seek asylum.
