About the Team:
With the assistance of Catholic Relief Services, the Dioceses has formed a Justice and Peace Advocacy Team (JPAT) to provide a voice for the poor and disenfranchised to our state and federal legislators. The Team studies the issues, formulates positions, and plans advocacy so that Catholics are able to assure the "least of these" are ahead.
