Pax Christi moves to DC

 |  NCR Today

Pax Christi USA, the national wing of the international Catholic peace organization, is moving its national headquarters to Washington, D.C., the group announced in a press release Friday.

"The growth of our movement, the dire need for voices holding up nonviolence, and our ever deepening commitment to speak truth to power call us to a new moment," Sisters of the Humility of Mary Sr. Josie Chrosniak, chairperson of the organization's national council, said in the release.

In a Feb. 4 visit to the NCR offices in Kansas City, Pax Christi USA executive director Dave Robinson said the organization has seen increased access to the political discussion since the establishment of its Washington office in 2002.

Then-Senator Barack Obama even invited Pax Christi to weigh-in at several meetings during his presidential transition process in 2008, Robinson noted.
