We hope you will save the date for our annual award celebration, where we will continue to celebrate our 10th Anniversary, while honoring three immigration advocacy partners.

The staff of FAN joined several other Catholic organizations based in DC to develop a voter’s guide for the upcoming mid-term elections in November. We wish to stress the importance of voting, and to assist members in addressing questions based on Catholic Social Teaching to those running for public office in both parties. As Franciscans, we support a consistent life ethic which believes in the sanctity of all human life, and that the most effective way to reduce abortion is to address poverty.
In January of this year, FAN's Director of Advocacy, Sr. Maria Orlandini was part of a delegation to Honduras, heading down to show support for the Honduran people in their struggles with their government. We invite you to read Sr. Maria's blog post about her trip.
