MCC offers webinar for students May 12

The Northern Cross

The Minnesota Catholic Conference, the public policy voice of the Catholic Church in Minnesota, will offer a live webinar for students May 12 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. called “Lessons in Advocacy: Students Standing for Life & Dignity.”

Organizers say the goal is to help teachers and parents equip their students with the tools they need to advocate for life and human dignity.

Students will learn:

  • Why Catholic students’ voices matter

  • What the church teaches about defending the life and dignity of every person

  • How their ideas can become laws

  • How to stand up for life and dignity by effectively interacting with legislators

The webinar is designed for students ages 12-18. It will include an opportunity to hear from and pray with Bishop Andrew Cozzens, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, and a live Q&A with a Minnesota legislator.
