Some materials from the Catholic Mobilizing Network- To Repeal the Death Penalty.

A Journey of Faith Facilitator Guide

A Journey of Faith Participant Guide

A Journey of Faith Prezi

You can also access an online version of the Prezi presentation with this link.

I think the Prezi presentation  is appropriate for JR High- Adults. Great for personal use/reflection too.   A Journey of Faith    seems geared to Grades 11,12, College , and ADULTS . Parts of it might be helpful for your own knowledge or to integrate into current  curriculums and parish programs.  


September 26 is the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.


In the richest and most prosperous country in the world, over 45 million people live in poverty. The younger you are, the more likely you are to live in poverty. One in five children live below the poverty line; and 23% or all children under six do. Over 16 million children live in food-insecure households. Programs such as SNAP (food stamps); Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); School Lunches; and other food assistance are effective and must be protected to fight poverty and hunger.

Our country has an affordable housing crisis. Housing is a human right, yet only 1 in 4 households that needs assistance actually gets it. Government programs like homelessness assistance, public housing, housing for the elderly and people with disabilities, and other housing and community development programs help fill this gap and should be supported.
 
Decent work at a just wage is critical for healthy families and communities. The government supports work by funding workforce development, re-entry of the formerly incarcerated, and other initiatives that create decent jobs in communities.

The most effective tools to fight child poverty are the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. Taken together, they decrease child poverty by over 6%. Recent expansions that have saved millions more from poverty should be protected.

In solidarity with the Visit of Pope Francis, tell  Congress to end the harmful policy of sequestration and find a balanced approach to deficit reduction that ensures adequate resources are devoted to meeting human needs.
