Your Voice is Needed: Take Action This August!

The 2013 August congressional recess is from August 2 to September 9.

NETWORK has put together some toolkits with suggestions on how you can encourage your members of Congress to support immigration reform and economic justice.

The immigration reform and economic justice toolkits will provide you with tips to:

  • Schedule an in-district lobby visit
  • Organize sign-on letter and petition delivery 
  • Host a prayer vigil
  • Attend a town hall meeting
  • Write an op-ed or letter to the editor of your local newspaper
  • Educate your community on the issues
  • Distribute and collect NETWORK Nuns on the Bus postcard messages to Congress in support of immigration reform. Place an order for free postcards today.
Also be sure to frequently visit our online action center to send emails to your members of Congress throughout the year!

For more support with your August recess activity, contact Shantha Ready Alonso and Ashley Wilson, the NETWORK Field Department, at
