Sister Simone Campbell in the News

We were honored to host Sister Simone Campbell of NETWORK Lobby, and the Nuns on a Bus, as part of the 2013 Kansas Conference on Poverty in Mid-July. Since then, she boldly testified at Rep. Ryan's Hearing on the War on Poverty, “We won’t address [poverty] by ignoring the successes of today’s safety net, but neither is today’s safety net adequate—we need a new commitment to reduce poverty and promote opportunity.”

The links below provide a wide variety of perspectives on her testimony, and how it was received:
