US Bishops Ask Voters to Urge Congress to Hear the Cry of the Poor.
Please ask your Congresspersons to strengthen international poverty-focused humanitarian and development assistance as they consider the upcoming federal budget for fiscal year 2013. While our nation’s fiscal challenges are significant, the current economic crisis disproportionately impacts the world’s poorest people.
