One of the most important aspects of the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering (CSMG) is participant meetings with members of Congress and their staff on issues of key concern to Catholics. CSMG Legislative Priorities will be identified for Gathering participants to advocate on Capitol Hill. Hill Notes and Backgrounders will prepare you to effectively articulate the Catholic position on our legislative priorities.
The following is a draft agenda of advocacy-related events for the 2020 Catholic Social Ministry Gathering. Days and times of these events will be fine-tuned.
Staty tuned for CSMG 2020 resources.
Completion of the Hill Visit Report Form gives us information about your Capitol Hill Visits—who you met with and their response to our legislative priorities. Your feedback will help staff members of the CSMG collaborating organizations in our ongoing advocacy efforts.
After CSMG we encourage you to continue the effort at home by planning "District Visits" with your senators, representatives, or their staff members back in your home state or district. District Visits help us, in the words of Pope Francis, "dialogue, dialogue, dialogue" with our political leaders, as well as deepen the relationships we hope that you established during your CSMG Capitol Hill Visits in Washington D.C. Visits throughout the year help Catholics to connect the efforts of national organizations with the voices of local communities, partner organizations, parishioners, and dedicated volunteers in support of the legislative priorities of the Church advanced at the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering in Washington D.C.
