As Catholics, we have a responsibility to engage in public and political life, to advocate and speak up for the common good, the poor, the most vulnerable, and human rights.

“It is necessary that all participate, each according to his position and role, in promoting the common good. This obligation is inherent in the dignity of the human person. . . . As far as possible citizens should take an active part in public life.” (CCC 1913-1915)
