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.
Parental registration is required. For more information and to register, visit www.mncatholic.org/LessonsInAdvocacy.
