Catholics urged to take action

The New York State Catholic Conference is urging Catholics to contact their state legislators and voice their opposition to the proposed Child Victims Act of New York, A2596/S2568 — also known as the "Markey bill" — and their support for alternative legislation, A5708a/S3107a, called the "Lopez bill." Visitors to the conference’s Web site, www.nyscatholic.org, can click on the "Take Action Now!" button to find a prewritten letter of opposition to the Markey bill and support for the Lopez bill. People may edit this letter as they choose, and it will be sent to the appropriate legislative representatives when they enter their address information into an online form.

Those wishing to stay informed about this and other issues on the Catholic conference’s radar may join its Catholic Advocacy Network by clicking on the "Join the Network" button on conference’s Web site. Through this network members will receive e-mailed action alerts about various legislative issues of concern to the Catholic conference.
