“In the Catholic tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue; participation in the political process is a moral obligation.” – The Challenge of Faithful Citizenship
These are strong and convicting words. However, for many, the whole political picture can feel overwhelming.
Which party should I choose?
I can’t stand the hateful tone in politics today.
There are just too many issues.
Do my voice and vote matter?
Being a responsible citizen does not mean being an expert on all issues; it means paying attention to what is going on around you and deciding on which issues you are interested.
Watch your representatives in action. View live and video-recorded legislative committee meetings on critical laws on which you are passionate.
Track the legislative status of bills, and get daily updates.
Track your Senator's and Representative's votes; research and monitor legislative activities, committees, members, detailed minutes, and voting record.
