NCC Leadership on the Fiscal Cliff

“Poverty is the real-life fiscal cliff facing 46 million Americans every day. As people of faith, let us raise our voices to demand that our leaders return to the table not for the sake of elusive bi-partisanship, but for the common good.”

~Kathryn Mary Lohre

“In a time of difficult budget negotiations, we believe the first commitment is to those who live in poverty. Compromises should not be at the expense of the programs that support those who live with the reality of hunger and poverty. As churches, we will continue to serve those who live in poverty, but we need the leadership of elected officials.”
