Hey, friends. Trying to get to Philly to hear @pontifex speak truth to power. Can you help fund my pilgrimage? http://bit.ly/1fa1Eu6 See More

THE STORY:

Pope Francis has been sharing a message condemning an economy of exclusion and calling on all people of good will to change the way we live to create an environment and a society where everyone can live in dignity. In September, he will deliver this message to Wall Street, Congress, and millions of people of faith. 50 ISAIAH leaders are going. I want to go with them. I want to go for reasons that are personal and powerful. On a personal level, my mother and my grandfather both had opportunities to attend mass with Pope John Paul II. On a powerful level, we expect people who are maintaining the current status quo to make a major push to discredit the Pope's message, and we want to organize people of faith to take action to put the values he's sharing about the economy and environment into action. I have $300 raised, but the cost of the trip is $800. Anything you can share to send me to Philadelphia to hear the Pope and organize our delegation as we return home, would be deeply appreciated.
