Days of Human Dignity #sharejourney
Pope Francis issued an invitation to “Share the Journey” with the millions of migrants around the world. In January 2018, the Archdiocese of Louisville responded to this call by launching an observance called “Days of Human Dignity”.

Justice for Immigrants
In 2004, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration and the Catholic Legal Immigration Network resolved to make comprehensive immigration reform, with special emphasis on legalization, a major public policy priority within the Church.

The result was a campaign entitled “Justice for Immigrants: A Journey of Hope.” The campaign is designed to unite and mobilize a growing network of Catholic institutions, individuals and other persons of good faith in support of a broad legalization program and comprehensive immigration reform.
