This Election Year, Catholic Sisters Launch “Tax Justice Truth Tour” Headed to Mar-a-Lago
UTICA, NY — The Nuns on the Bus Tour will hold a press conference at the office of Rep. Claudia Tenney (NY-22) on Tuesday, October 23rd. Ahead of the midterm elections, the Nuns on the Bus are traveling across the country to educate the public about the deceitfully-named “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017,” including congressional districts where the incumbent voted in support of the Republican tax law.
The Nuns on the Bus Tax Justice Truth Tour launched in Los Angeles on October 8 and ends outside Mar-a-Lago with a “Fiesta for the Common Good” on November 2. Details for the event are below.
What: Nuns on the Bus Press Conference at Rep. Tenney’s Office
When: Tuesday, October 23 at 10:30 a.m. EDT
Where: 555 French Road, New Hartford, NY 13413
“Last year, Nuns on the Bus stayed in Washington to keep relentless congressional attacks on the common good at bay, but this year we’re going on the road to hold members accountable for their votes,” said Sister Simone Campbell, SSS, executive director of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, which launched the first Nuns on the Bus tour during the 2012 presidential campaign. “Instead of investing in our shared future and ensuring that everyone contributes their fair share towards the common good, Congressional Republicans enacted a tax law that is disastrous for workers, middle-class families, small businesses, and our economy.”
The Nuns on the Bus Tax Justice Truth Tour includes 30 Catholic Sisters attending 54 events in 21 states over the course of 27 days on a tour that began October 8. A full schedule is available at: www.nunsonthebus.org/events.
Sister Simone Campbell, additional Nuns on the Bus, and local partners are available for interview before and after the event in New Hartford, a suburb of Utica.
