Catholic Families for America joins forces with CatholicVote.org

.- CatholicVote.org president Brian Burch announced on Jan. 24 that grassroots political group Catholic Families for America will now join their growing family of organizations.

The latest move broadens the widening scope of CatholicVote.org's initiatives. CatholicVote – which describes itself as a lay movement of committed Catholics and patriotic Americans – will now collaborate with and have the support of Catholic Families of America, a group oriented towards shaping public policy in favor of pro-life values.

Catholic Families of America lists topics such as the sanctity of life, education, taxes and foreign policy as among its core focus issues. 

Burch noted in his Jan. 24 announcement that Dr. Kevin Roberts, founder of Catholic Families for America, will join CatholicVote.org's Political Action Committee (PAC) advisory board.

“Catholics must be dedicated advocates for life, marriage, and freedom at the ballot box,” Burch said, adding that “Dr. Roberts continues to be a strong champion for the Faith and we’re pleased to welcome him and his organization into the CatholicVote.org family.”

Dr. Roberts will continue to provide his personal daily podcast commentaries at capitolhillcatholic.com, in addition to his PAC advisory board role.

“The opportunity to become part of CatholicVote means that the movement by lay Catholics to reclaim the public square continues to gain momentum,” Dr. Roberts said on Jan. 24. “I look forward to continuing my efforts in cultivating Catholic political activism as part of the CatholicVote team.”

CatholicVote.org PAC launched its inaugural year during the 2010 election cycle. Seven out of the 10 congressional leaders it endorsed won their campaigns.
