A CONCRETE EXAMPLE OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS STANDING UP FOR POOR PEOPLE

Thanks to all the clergy who spoke at the City Council meeting last night (Fr. Harry Ledwith, Rev. Beth Rambikur, Msgr. Tom Cahalane and Rev. Delle McCormick) in behalf of the City not raising bus fares.

Their exhortation to the Council to not balance their budget on the backs of poor people was loud and clear.

Thanks also to the 45 other religious leaders who signed a letter to the Council.

Special thanks to Pima County Interfaith Council for all their hard work in bringing together the religious leaders of Tucson to stand in solidarity with bus riders.

Here are some pictures of the event and a video of the message delivered by Msgr. Tom and Rev. Delle.
