On February 11, 2014, Senator Dick Durbin and Senator Barbara Boxer praised NETWORK, Sister Simone Campbell, and NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus in front of the U.S. Senate. We are deeply grateful for their acknowledgment of our faith-filled work for justice.
Their remarks also included direct quotes from Sister Simone Campbell's op-ed on the Child Tax Credit in Roll Call, which appeared on February 10.
“I tell you, I have such respect for Sister Simone Campbell and the work of NETWORK. Because they don’t just read the Gospel, and go to church, and practice their religion; they live it. They live it. And when they see things happening on this floor, that hurt the most vulnerable people, they speak out. That’s what Nuns on the Bus did. That’s what Sister Simone Campbell is doing.”
