Priorities

The DC Catholic Conference reviews public policy initiatives in light of the Gospel and Catholic moral and social teachings. We are committed to working in partnership with government officials, parishioners and all people of good will on the following concerns:

We support policies that promote and protect human life from conception to natural death. We work on matters that improve child welfare and education; provide health care, employment and affordable housing; assist immigrants, the sick, elderly and developmentally disabled; and combat poverty and crime.
