Pope Francis’ visit to the United States will bring our core issues to the forefront. Working people are struggling in an economy that’s out of balance; our immigration system is broken; our criminal justice system is plagued by systemic racism; and the effects of climate change are increasingly obvious.
This is a unique moment in America, as the attention of millions will be drawn into conversations about of economic, immigrant, racial and climate justice when they are highlighted during the papal visit.
Watch Mary Kay Henry explain why the pope's visit matters to all of us who care about social justice.
