Since 2008, the Franciscan Action Network has been organizing people of faith to stand up for those who are marginalized. Despite a limited budget and small staff, FAN has been successful in bringing a Franciscan voice to the national conversation about the moral values of our country.
This fall is especially significant as we wrap up a year of celebrations when we gather on November 15, 2018 for our 10th Anniversary Award benefit. We will honor three very special organizations with whom we partner on a regular basis: CASA, NAKASEC and the Interfaith Immigration Coalition. These groups work hard every day to advocate with and support our immigrant and refugee brothers and sisters. Their message of welcoming the stranger and caring for those in need aligns perfectly with FAN’s mission, and we are honored to be able to uplift their work.
Please register to attend this fun-filled evening by clicking this link. We look forward to celebrating with you.
If you are unable to attend, we invite you to support our honorees in one of two ways. You may choose to sponsor a table at the event or donate a ticket. We want to have a packed house to celebrate our friends at CASA, IIC and NAKASEC. Many of the people these organizations help and support can not afford the ticket price. If you are not in the DC area, consider buying and donating a ticket for someone less fortunate.
