Social justice

Maryknoll missioners around the world feel the impact of social injustice and see its effects in the communities were they live and work. Flowing from their ministries of presence and accompaniment, as well as from the concrete programs and projects in which Maryknollers participate, we engage in the hard work of identifying root causes of social and economic injustice. With a particular focus on the geographical regions where Maryknoll is present, as well as on structural or systemic injustice affecting women, children, indigenous peoples, migrants and refugees and people with HIV and AIDS, we join with others of like mind to identify potential pathways to social transformation and to move our world in that direction.

Speak Out Against Increased Fees for Immigration Applications

The Trump Administration has recently proposed a new rule that would raise the application fees for asylum and U.S. citizenship. A sharp increase in the cost of applying for legal immigration status would make it impossible for many people to apply, putting them at risk of deportation and harm. 

Take Action: Submit a public comment to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) opposing this rule.
