Platform for the Common Good

During the 2008 election season, as the political parties developed their political platforms, many Catholics groups came together to develop a Platform for the Common Good.  This platform is based on principles from Catholic social tradition and addresses what we can do to make our nation “a more perfect union” focused on the common good.

Peacemaking

The Catholic Social Teaching principle of universal human dignity demands not only that our nation not engage in violence, but that we also help rebuild countries like Iraq that have been damaged by our military action. Their citizens should have what they need to lead peaceful, productive, stable lives, especially after enduring the violence of war.

Further, NETWORK believes that the U.S. should develop ethical foreign policies that emphasize conflict resolution through multilateral diplomacy instead of unilateral U.S.

Issues

NETWORK’s issue agenda for the 113th Congress is focused on the issue areas below.

In line with our mission as a Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace, NETWORK’s position on each of these issue areas is informed by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and the lived experience of real people. We especially focus on people struggling at the economic margins and see poverty alleviation as an integral part of our mission.
