As Catholics, we have a long tradition of engagement in the political process as a means of putting our faith into action. We are called to bring the best of ourselves and our faith to the public square—and yet today, many shy away from such involvement because our national and local conversations are filled with vitriol and harsh language, often directed at people themselves.
As Catholics, we must model a better way. The USCCB invites you to join the Civilize It campaign by taking the pledge below as a way to promote civility, love our neighbors, and build community.
Click here to take the Civilize It pledge as an individual, family, or community. Then use the resources below to prepare your heart and mind for Election Day.
