Our advocacy demands that we remain in communication with our elected officials on a local, state and national level. Consider contacting your local congressperson and making your voice heard:
Our Call to Justice is broadened by our participation in the International Presentation Association.
The IPA has Non-Governmental Organization status at the United Nations and functions in a special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council. Our IPA Networker facilitates communication with and among the PBVM Justice Contacts around the world. An International Assembly composed of representatives of every Presentation congregation, province, and region is held every five years.

Our Call to effect systemic change is more effective through our membership in NETWORK.
A Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace, NETWORK educates, organizes and lobbies for economic and social transformation.
