  • As communities of disciples, we have a responsibility to foster inclusivity, peace, and justice with compassion and forgiveness;

  • Every individual has the right to act according to an informed conscience and the responsibility to promote the equality and dignity of all people.

OUR STRATEGIES

Racial Justice Circle

The Racial Justice Circle is called to plant seeds of racial justice throughout Maryland. The RJC believes that the wounds of racism will only begin to heal when people of all races seek to understand and respect one another. To change human behavior, we must first change the human heart. We invite you to join the Circle.

Latino Racial Justice Circle

The Latino Racial Justice Circle stands in solidarity with the Maryland Latino Community and will partner with exciting faith traditions and social justice programs. We are committed to work for comprehensive immigration reform. We hold fund raising programs to raise dollars to pay attorneys who will represent immigration deportation cases. We also work with Latino youth and parents to offer scholarship programs in leadership training.

Church Justice

Call to Action Maryland will be a leader and a prophetic voice in challenging Catholics to act for justice and build inclusive communities. CTA MD works on the following social justice issues; Church Worker Justice; LGBTQ and the Welcoming Church; Immigration Reform and Sanctuary; Eliminate Systemic Racial Injustice. CTA MD will stand  with existing groups and will support community actions that address injustice.
