After a couple of decades as a community leader and advocate in Oakland, California, Sister Simone Campbell went national, establishing the NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice and travelling the country as part The Nuns on the Bus. She recently spent a week in New Mexico, listening to poor people in the cities, Albuquerque and Las Cruces, and especially in rural areas of the state. She’ll tell us what she learned about, the need for the SNAP – food stamps – program without political restrictions on eligibility. Why not, she asks, just assure that no Americans go hungry?
