Call To Action educates, inspires and activates Catholics to act for justice and build inclusive communities through a lens of anti-racism and anti-oppression principles.


Call To Action will be the leader in challenging Catholics to act for justice and build inclusive communities.

Core Beliefs

We believe that:

  • The people of God are called to live lives rooted in the Gospel.
  • The church is the people of God and the people of God are accountable to the Creator and each other.
  • Faith communities have the responsibility to foster inclusivity and justice.
  • Every individual has the right to act according to an informed conscience and the responsibility to promote the equality and dignity of all people.

For a historical look at our values, read our “Call For Reform in the Catholic Church,” first published in the New York Times in 1990.

How do we embody our mission? Take a listen!

In November 2014, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Call To Action conference and encouraged the community to “forge ahead” in cultivating structural change in the Catholic Church.

“I join you in solidarity as you continue to forge ahead… I am grateful that Call To Action, USA has never ceased to advocate for structural change.”
