Nuns on the Bus 2018 Trip Announcement

View the full release.

“Nuns on the Bus are hitting the road again this fall, leveraging the midterm elections to expose the lies and tell the truth about the harmful effects of the 2017 tax vote—and to hold congressional Republicans accountable for voting in favor of this disastrous tax law.

The Nuns on the Bus ‘On the Road to Mar-a-Lago’ tour will include 54 events in 21 states over the course of 27 days. The tour will launch in Los Angeles with a rally and end at Mar-a-Lago in Florida with a “Fiesta for the Common Good,” traveling to congressional districts where the incumbent chose to support the deceitfully named the ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017’.

‘Last year, Nuns on the Bus stayed in Washington to keep relentless congressional attacks on the common good at bay, but this year we’re going on the road to hold members accountable for their votes,’ said Sister Simone Campbell, SSS, Executive Director of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice and Leader of Nuns on the Bus. ‘When Republicans in Congress passed their hyper-partisan tax plan into law last fall, we knew it was rooted in the fallacy of trickle-down economics. Now, we’ve seen the results of structuring tax policy to favor the biggest corporations and the wealthiest individuals in our nation. That’s why Nuns on the Bus are going on the road to Mar-a-Lago to expose the lies of Republicans’ devastating tax law.’

Nuns: Thirty Catholic Sisters from across the country will travel on the bus. They will carry what they learn from voters across the country to President Trump’s resort at Mar-a-Lago—the pinnacle of economic inequality and hoarding of wealth. The Sisters are from:

  • California (Los Angeles)
