Travel Log: Denver
Sister Marilyn Carpenter, OSB
October 14, 2018
Participating in the Nuns on the Bus Town Hall for Justice was one of my very best learning experiences of the last several months. All of us sisters and Nuns on the Bus supporters there said that we certainly wanted to support this trip as the bus makes its way across the country to Mar-a-Lago on Nov 2nd. At the Town Hall, I took a large box of Connection magazines and pledge cards to hand out at our next Sunday service and to share as much information about this Nuns on the Bus trip as I can with as many as I can.
The whole purpose of this trip across the country from California to Florida is to present facts and help people become aware of the consequences of the Republican Tax Law, and where the funds to pay for these tax cuts will likely come from—service programs such as education, child care, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and more. If I could learn as much as I did this past weekend from Sister Simone Campbell, then I urge as many as possible to learn about the Nuns on the Bus 2018: Tax Justice Truth Tour. Go to a Nuns on the Bus event if they’re coming to your city. Visit the NETWORK Lobby website, download the new Connection magazine and read, read, read and dialogue with your family, friends, neighbors, groups you belong to–anyone who will chat so that we can all make informed decisions for the upcoming election. The basic message of Nuns on the Bus is that we come together in community to work for social justice and equality for the common good of all people.
