Franciscan Action Network was founded in 2007 to create a "unified Franciscan voice for justice." We raise awareness about social justice issues through the lens of Franciscan values. Check out our website www.franciscanaction.org
We would ask that you please remember FAN's commitment to civility in dialogue. We would like to encourage any dialogue on the FAN page to please adhere to the FRANCIS Commitment. Items not consistent with these principles may be removed.
Inspired by the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi and the long heritage of men and women who follow in their footsteps as present day disciples of Jesus Christ, the Franciscan Action Network is designed to bring a coordinated and effective voice to matters of Justice, Peace and Care for Creation in our world. The particular focus of the Franciscan Action Network’s advocacy is the U.S. Government and related Washington, DC- based institutions (e.g., World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Organization of American States…). The advocacy topics will be both international and domestic in scope. In these arenas, the Franciscan Action Network hopes to bring a spirit of healing and reconciliation as they advocate for the transformation of the world, as inspired by the Spirit of God.
