Resource for Upcoming Election: The Common Good

As faithful citizens guided by the Gospel command to protect those who are most vulnerable, a coalition of national Catholic organizations is working to build on the momentum created during the 2008 election. Four years ago, individuals and groups across the U.S. created a national Platform for the Common Good, which was ratified at the Convention for the Common Good in Philadelphia.
In 2012, our goal is to create common-good platforms for each state, and DC, which will be signed and delivered to candidates and public officials. Each of these 51 individual platforms will be written with the input of people in that state, and they will include a national preamble designed to outline a common-good perspective.
We invite you to join us in the coming months as we engage Catholic voters across the nation in the writing, signing and delivery of these platforms.
