MARCH 8, 2018

On or before International Women's Day, March 8, Pax Christi International and the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative are having a postcard campaign and will be sending them to Pope Francis supporting his strong condemnation of nuclear weapons and arms trade. It's not a physical postcard to send in the mail, but an e-postcard sent through the Internet. It is an effort to thank the Pope for his leadership on peace and nonviolence. We want him to know that we are listening to and affirming his words.

Pax Christi International and the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative will collect the responses and will deliver the names and personal notes to the Vatican on March 8.

Just go to the following link, press "English" and go from there. It's easy! Thanks for your involvement.

SISTERS ONLINE loves prayers. We have no doubt about that. Prayers, however, are not enough to fix the problem of guns in America. We must act and we must act now!

Our leadership MUST take action to achieve solutions about gun control in our country. We must stand up to the NRA and take AR-15 assault rifles off our streets.

"Thoughts and prayers" have become an ineffectural response after each mass shooting, of which there have been so many. Please take action.

Contact your elected leaders in Congress, Democrat or Republican, and tell them you will no longer stand for their inaction. Your vote in 2018 depends on actions taken NOW.

Also, please contact President Trump and Mitch McConnell. Here is contact information for them:

President Trump and many GOP legislators are saying that there is so much voter fraud in our country and they want to change the electoral process to take care of this fraud. The only problem is that no one can say with any clarity that fraud exists. So what it looks like is that President Trump and his GOP cronies are trying to put restrictions on voting to favor their GOP agenda.

Discriminatory photo ID laws, cutting back early voting, and eliminating polling locations are three things Republicans are doing to make it harder for people to vote. In Novemeber, 2018, we want as many people as possible to vote. We want to make it easy for people not make it harder. Here is one way to make this happen:

We must tell Congress to pass the Automatic Voter Registration Act which would create a path to voting for up to 50 million new voters. This will take our grassroot efforts, however. Please contact your members of Congress and strongly urge them to support the Automatic Voter Registration Act.

This Act will expand automatic voter registration nationwide by requiring states to automatically register eligible voters when they interact with certain state and federal agencies. Anyone can opt out, and no one would be registered against their will. We have to work to pass good laws that help expand registration and bring more people to the polls.

Eight states have already passed automatic voter registration. It's time for Congress to take action to make this happen in ALL states so that people who want to register to vote can do so without be hampered by Republican rules.

Please ask your elected officials in Washington to pass the Automatic Voter Registration Act.

Thanks for getting involved.



One of the best ways to crack down on big drug companies is to allow Medicare to negotiate discounts for pharmaceutical drugs. Congress has not allowed this to happen leaving the program paying more for drugs than the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and Medicaid. It's a taxpayer giveaway to pharmaceutical companies, and we can help it to stop by contacting our legislators.

We need to stop big pharma, who are probably making huge profits by scamming Americans on their drug prices.

Please contact your elected officials in Congress and tell them ENOUGH of this price gouging.

Thanks for getting involved.
