Sister Simone Campbell to Speak at the Roundhouse Next Week

Simone Campbell, executive director of the Catholic Social Justice Lobby NETWORK and founder of the Nuns on the Bus movement, is the featured speaker at the 10th Annual Witness for the People Rally at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe on Wednesday, January 16.

The rally is sponsored each year by a coalition of social justice organizations, led by New Mexico Interfaith Worker Justice and New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light.

Sister Simone, a member of the Sisters of Social Service and author of A Nun on the Bus, is a lawyer, lobbyist, poet, and Zen contemplative working on issues such as “mending the wealth gap,” “enacting a living wage,” and “crafting a faithful budget that benefits the 100%.”

She is a powerful voice for longings so many of us share, across differences, about how to engage with the well-being of our neighbors in this complicated age.

Here is the schedule for her visit on Wednesday, January 16.
