The Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach believes that policies and decisions should be informed by the experiences of the people most impacted by those policies and decisions. We advocate for peace and justice, and are guided by the Gospels, Catholic Social Teaching, and the experience of Columban missionaries and the communities they serve.
Our advocacy priorities are economic justice, environmental justice, migration, and peace and demilitarization.
We are a ministry of the Missionary Society of St. Columban, who lives in solidarity with the poor, the marginalized, and the wounded earth. In 16 countries around the world, we work to empower people and one another.
