The USCCB works to apply Catholic social teaching to domestic issues in the public policy arena by advocating on behalf of the poor and vulnerable on a wide range of legislative matters. We promote family and child friendly policies, access to healthcare, and reform of welfare policies and address issues of poverty including housing and homelessness, hunger, labor, and wage concerns. We also work for the preservation of the environment with a particular emphasis on rural life issues and monitor legislation dealing with individual dignity as governed by civil rights laws.
