Dialogue for Justice

Catholic Advocacy to Reduce Poverty

The Dialogue for Justice is an Archdiocesan-wide initiative to strengthen Catholic advocacy on behalf of poor and vulnerable people in our communities. The goal of the Dialogue for Justice is to partner with parishes and Catholic organizations to effectively advocate to reduce poverty in our communities through educating grassroots advocates, convening advocacy gatherings, providing legislative briefings, coordinating and supporting in-district meetings with legislators, encouraging participation in Catholic Advocacy Day, and providing advocacy resources to parishes and groups.

The Dialogue for Justice is sponsored by the Archdiocese of Seattle and coordinated by Catholic Community Services, the Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center, and the Washington State Catholic Conference.

Together, our advocacy…

  • Protects the dignity of people who are poor and vulnerable;
  • Takes seriously our responsibility to ensure that the rights of persons in need are realized; and,
  • Urges legislators to implement programs and policies that give priority to the human dignity.
