Catholic Climate Covenant offers this voting resource for the 2020 election.
The U.S. bishops call Catholics to “apply a consistent moral framework to issues facing the nation and world” and “shape their choices in elections in the light of Catholic Social Teaching.” Just as St. Francis of Assisi demonstrated throughout his life, we too must put our love into action. Ahead of the November 3 U.S. election, pledge to enact love and vote informed by the fullness of Catholic Social Teaching.
Take the pledge to vote with Catholic love in action. Join thousands of other people of faith who have pledged to vote with love in action through ours and our partners’ efforts.
Inspired by Catholic Social Teaching, “I pledge to vote with love in action in mind so as to protect life, respect human dignity, and promote the common good, including God’s gift of creation.”
We also invite you to share the pledge with friends and family: https://bit.ly/PledgeVoteLoveinAction
