Leadership Development and Education

The Environmental Justice Progarm promotes Catholic social teaching and the environment and trains Catholic leaders to act on this teaching in a variety of ways:

  • by identifying young leaders and scholars through activity generated by our programs
  • through our outreach efforts in the course of our everyday policy work with diocesan social action directors
  • through leadership retreats co-sponsored with dioceses and state Catholic conferences
  • through a variety of educational materials and other resources (see Useful Resources)
  • through annual meeting of an informal diocesan advisory group that convenes during the Catholic Social Ministry Gathering each February
