FAN Signs on to Letter Thanking Pope Francis

The Franciscan Action Network signed on to a letter composed by members of the Washington Interfaith Staff Committee (WISC) thanking Pope Francis for his "clarity of vision" in the encyclical, "Laudato Si." The letter describes the WISC communities efforts to educate and advocate for those marginalized by our society, how we collaborate with each other in the daily meetings with U.S. Policy makers and how we work together on strategies common to all our organizations.

The letter ends with a warm welcome as we anticipate the Holy Father's visit in September.
