The Conference of Major Superiors of Men — of which the Viatorians are members — has joined more than 70 organizations of the Families Belong Together coalition to call on Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase to stop financing for-profit prison companies which are benefitting from family separation and detention.
In response, CMSM and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop’s Justice for Immigrants Campaign will be offering a webinar on corporate accountability, which takes place at 1 p.m. CST on Aug. 6.
Participants will learn about the system of profit around immigrant detention, including family detention, how to use economic leverage for more just U.S. policies, and more about alternatives to detention.
In other news, CMSM officials are preparing for the Season of Creation, which is a worldwide celebration of prayer and action for our common home. The initiative will take place from Sept. 1 through Oct. 4.
Learn more about some of its highlights as well as the chance to sign a petition against the corporations who are benefitting from family and immigrant detention, visit the Conference of Major Superiors of Men’s home page.
