I Am Excited to Educate, Organize, and Lobby with the NETWORK Community
April 7, 2021
Meet Mary Novak, NETWORK’s new Executive Director
Thursday, April 15 at 4:00 PM Eastern/1:00 PM Pacific.
I am honored to be here with all of you as the new Executive Director of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice. As I begin this new adventure, I ask — if you are a praying person — for your prayers as I transition into this Spirit-filled community. The NETWORK community is full of committed justice-seekers and has been for 50 years. I am grateful to join you in building our country anew.
Today, we are facing unprecedented challenges pushed to the crisis point by the COVID-19 pandemic. This crisis has also brought us together in a shared experience out of which so many are calling for federal approaches to root out injustice.
We need federal policies that name and dismantle systemic racism, eliminate the wealth and income gap, and allow all people to thrive so that we truly are a “more perfect union.” I’m excited to educate, organize, and lobby with you, the NETWORK community.
