Join us in Washington D.C. on January 24, 2012

We would like to invite you to a very special day-long event in DC the day after the March for Life. The event is for Catholic voters and activists looking to get more involved in the political process, along with anyone who will be dealing with Catholic voters. In fact, several of our speakers will be prominent evangelicals who understand the crucial importance of the Catholic vote.

It’s no secret that liberal pro-abortion groups were successful in fooling Catholics in 2008. This time Catholic Advocate will stand in the way of their deceptions by helping to equip you and thousands of other activists to reach Catholic voters with the authentic social teaching of the Church about political participation. Will you join us for this important event?
