Quincy Howard, OP

Government Relations Specialist

Sr. Quincy is part of our Government Relations team working with lawmakers and their staff to advance NETWORK’s policy platform in Congress. She plans and carries out targeted strategies for pushing NETWORK’s Mend the Gaps agenda on Capitol Hill by coordinating with our grassroots mobilization team and with coalition partner organizations in the faith community and beyond. Quincy brings her experience in urban planning to NETWORK—including community development, disaster recovery and resilience planning, environmental advocacy, and policy analysis. A professed Dominican Sister of Sinsinawa, Quincy is passionate about Catholic Social Justice and the call to action to protect and serve the most vulnerable members of society.

Where she finds inspiration for work:

• Serving breakfast to the local homeless population at the Father McKenna Center
• The NETWORK advocates, always eager to engage around social justice policies
• The legacy of women religious in the U.S. and at NETWORK Lobby
• Prayer
• Meaningful conversations with people who care

What she loves outside of NETWORK:

• Being outdoors and enjoying nature; living in community; nurturing personal connections and meeting new people; TRAVEL!
