The Catholic Worker Movement has long believed that as Christians we are not only called to help those in need but to challenge the oppressive systems that create the need and injustice we see around us. In this tradition we weekly witness publicly in a prayerful attempt to rouse the consciences of our fellow citizens.
On Wednesday afternoons we gather with signs outside of Los Angeles’ federal building to protest war, immigration court to advocate for more humane policies, city hall to advocate for affordable housing, or in other places, at other times as The Spirit moves us.
Give u a call at (323) 267-8789 to get involved or find out more about our schedule.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki Day Witness (August 6 or 9):
Each year we commemorate the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and protest against U.S. nuclear weapons policy, and U.S. imperial war-making, by traveling to Vandenberg Air Force Base, on the central coast, where we have a vigil and nonviolent direct action. If you are interested in accompanying us, please call (323) 267-8789 and make arrangements. (Vandenberg AFB is a key facility in U.S. missile testing, weapons in space, missile defense program, and satellite launches.)
