The Dialogue for Justice began in 2011 and is an Archdiocesan-wide initiative coordinated by Catholic Community Services of Western Washington, the Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center (IPJC) and the Washington State Catholic Conference (WSCC). For more information about Dialogue for Justice, contact Josephine Tamayo Murray at (206) 328-5701 or by e-mail.
The goal of the Dialogue for Justice is to increase Catholic advocacy to reduce poverty in Washington State through educating grassroots advocates, convening regional advocacy gatherings, providing legislative briefings, coordinating and supporting in-district meetings with legislators, encouraging participation in Catholic Advocacy Day, and providing advocacy resources to parishes and other groups.
Together, our advocacy…
- Protects the dignity of people who are poor and vulnerable;
- Takes seriously our responsibility to ensure that the rights of persons in need are realized; and
- Urges legislators to implement programs and policies that give priority to the human dignity and rights of all, especially the poor and vulnerable.
