Mission Frère - Advocacy

Faith in ActionMar 30, 2021

Over the past few years, Our Faith in Action program has supported communities in Peru, Brownsville, and the South Bronx by raising money, connecting with the people, traveling to those communities to stand in solidarity and advocate for the poor. This year, we decided that even though we could not travel to these places, it was even more important that we continue to support these communities not only financially but by empowering out students to speak out for the poor in these communities.
