2010 Catholic Lobby Day


Archbishop Mitty students are in Sacramento today speaking and advocating on the four main legislative issues chosen by the church for this year’s lobby day.

Stay posted to our MAP blog throughout the day to receive updates on the day’s events.  Senior Feriel Aoun and Sophomore Sruthi Ramaswami will be delivering a speech on high school advocacy before the mass at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament tomorrow.

MAP, Mitty Advocacy Project is forming a state-wide advocacy network linking high schools, and Diocese throughout the state.   If you are interested in starting an advocacy program at your high school information on our network will be posted later this week.

Sophomore Amandi Guilardi states, “by participating in Catholic Lobby Day I gave thousands of Californians a voice.  Think about it – if my participation in MAP could change just one legislators mind, it could sway another legislator prior to a floor vote and affect people’s lives for the better.”
