Catholic Advocacy Network (CAN) 

(a project of the Maryland Catholic Conference)

The Catholic Advocacy Network provides a quick way for you to communicate with your elected officials on issues that are important to you.  The Network does its work via letters, telephone calls, and visits to legislators during the annual Lobby Night that is held in Annapolis each year during the month of February. 

To register to receive alerts on pertinent legislation, along with messages to send to your elected officials go to the Catholic Conference Website or contact Marsha Raymond, our Director of Social Justice.
