Sr. Simone Campbell, SSS spoke at the Community of Saint Peter on Saturday afternoon, October 12, 2019. Here is a recording of her presentation.
Sr. Simone has spoken both at Historic Saint Peter and the Community. She is the Executive Director of NETWORK, a social justice lobby in DC. She and her staff break down pending legislation and current policy in everyday terms, explain where the money is coming from and where it is going, and where the inequities are. She is a fierce defender of the poor. She believes everyone has the obligation to speak up and act out on behalf of the underserved. Watch this memorable clip of her discussing Christian social activism and “nuns on the bus” with Stephen Colbert.
The Community of Saint Peter was honored and humbled to host Sr. Simone and her Network team.
