Sister Simone Campbell is a religious leader, lawyer, poet, and public policy expert. She is Executive Director of NETWORK, whose mission is to lobby, organize and educate for a nation and world rooted in justice. With NETWORK, she lobbies Washington on issues of economic justice, immigration reform, and healthcare. She was instrumental in organizing the “Nuns on the Bus” tour of nine states in 2012 to oppose the “Ryan Budget,” approved by the House of Representatives, which would have decimated programs to help people in need. She has led five bus tours, focusing on economic justice, comprehensive immigration reform, and voter turnout. In 1978, she founded the Community Law Center in Oakland and served as lead attorney for 18 years, addressing the needs of the working poor.

This event is free and open to the public. Guests are welcome to bring lunch. Lunch may also be purchased at the Malott Commons Dining Hall for $8.00. For more information: 909-621-8274 or ifc@scrippscollege.edu.
