About Us

A Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace, NETWORK educates, lobbies, and organizes for economic and social transformation.

NETWORK is a progressive voice within the Catholic community that has been influencing Congress in favor of peace and justice for more than 40 years. Through lobbying and legislative advocacy, we strive to close the gap between rich and poor and to dismantle policies rooted in racism, greed and violence. Since our founding in 1971 by 47 Catholic sisters, NETWORK has been faithfully answering the Gospel call to act for justice. Most recently, we have become well known for NETWORK Nuns on the Bus tours. We invite you to join us.

NETWORK is a national movement of people who are challenged by the Gospel, Catholic Social Teaching, and Earth principles. We act for justice and peace in solidarity with the global community. We invite the participation of people from all sectors of our society and place the needs and voices of people living in poverty at the center of decision making. We are anti-racist and inclusive in our actions; we collaborate, partner and engage differences in service of our mission.
