United Power Year End Update

St. Mary’s has been a member of United Power for Action and Justice, since its founding in 1997. United Power is a collection of churches, mosques, synagogues, and civic organizations in Cook County working together to address local  issues affecting the common good- campaigns like affordable health care, accessible housing for working families, gun violence and mental health crises. 2022 was a year of astonishing successes, and the accompanying Annual Report shows the effects of long term community organizing that works across political, economic and racial lines through non-partisan collaboration that holds the public and private sectors accountable on these issues. St. Mary’s has been part of this work for 26 years exercising our Faith in following Jesus through a partnership with the Abrahamic Faiths of Islam and Judaism.
