As you may know, I am always open for suggestions and guest writers for YLBG. Sr Mary Ann Barnhorn made a suggestion for our first Lenten edition. As we make our journey through Lent, perhaps you could consider engaging in more advocacy? I have found the League of Conservation Voters to be a wonderful resource for legislative action on environmental issues. They research topics well and look at issues from various angles.
Sr Mary Ann suggested I provide information to you on who are your elected officials.
Advocacy is important on both a state and federal level. Here in Reading, where Mount Notre Dame is located, our state representative is Jessica Miranda. Our State Senator is Louis Blessing. For others in Ohio, you can find your representative and your senator by simply entering your street address and zip code. Then click submit.
For Congressional officials, everyone can find their senators and their representatives.
You can contact the White House by email or call the switchboard at 202-456-1414.
Here are the states in which SNDdeN-Ohio Province sisters live. Find your elected officials at these links:
AZ: Representative & Senator
CA: Representative & Senator
IL: Alderman, Rep & Senator
KY: Representative & Senator (enter your address into the search bar on the map.)
MA: Representative & Senator
MD: All elected Officials (Click “Look Up”)
NY: Assembly & Senator
If I missed someone, let me know. I can help you find your people.
