Convention for the Common Good - July 11-13, 2008

The Common Good Convention, a national gathering of community leaders dedicated to social justice, will take place July 11-13 in Philadelphia, PA at the Sheraton Philadelphia City Center Hotel. The Convention, inspired by Catholic Social Teaching, is being convened by Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and NETWORK, the National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, and sponsored by the Center of Concern and 18 other Catholic organizations. Representatives from the sponsoring organizations and hundreds of others will explore how the common good, a foundational concept of Catholic Social Teaching, can unite peoples of good will behind a platform that emphasized the interdependence, justice, charity and cooperation that are essential to good governance.
