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.
Here, enjoy a brief biography of St. Francis of Assisi and how he came to lead a band of brothers that has expanded today worldwide.
As part of the celebration of our 10th Anniversary, the Franciscan Action Network (FAN) was inspired to host an art contest. We reached out to Franciscan High Schools and Universities to offer an opportunity for the students to learn more about Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi, to showcase their artwork, and perhaps to win a prize.
Franciscans greatly concerned over most recent roll back of clean environment regulation for coal plants.
To celebrate ten years of advocating with the Franciscan family for justice on Capitol Hill and across the country, the Franciscan Action Network staff and board gathered at St. Francis Hall in Washington, D.C. with friends and partners on Thursday November 15th for the annual FAN award benefit. Founders of FAN and original staff were in attendance as the hall filled with Franciscans and Franciscan-hearted individuals who braved wintery weather to commemorate the organization’s founding and to honor several immigration advocacy organizations.
