National Advocacy Center

The National Advocacy Center offers education through processes and strategies that address social justice issues and advocates for changes in society - particularly those that relate directly to women, children and the dignity of the human person.

The Center reflects the spirituality and mission of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd working in solidarity with the disenfranchised - particularly families, women, and children.

The National Advocacy Center:

  • Amplifies the Good Shepherd corporate voice by linking our direct services to work for change in the structures of society.
  • Builds awareness and stimulates social action related to legislative priorities and relevant social justice issues.
  • Prepares educational materials for Good Shepherd groups in the United States, including weekly listserv updates, monthly legislative faxes and quarterly newsletters.
  • Lobbies and fosters relationships with members of congress and their staffs from districts where Good Shepherd Sisters and agencies are present.
  • Prepares and disseminates appropriate public statements and participates in relevant public events.
  • Collaborates with the Good Shepherd NGO representative at the United Nations in New York and the Good Shepherd Peace and Justice Secretariat in Rome to support international advocacy efforts.
  • Joins with other human needs advocacy organizations in coalitions to strengthen the voice for social justice.
