1. Despite the year-2000 Jubilee call for redistribution and inclusiveness, recent decades of global economic expansion have created a privileged group into extreme wealth with a concurrent entrapment of peoples and communities living in conditions of extreme poverty. Global political and economic systems and structures have largely disregarded the calls for the
-restoration of justice, -reconciliation among all humanity, -welcome of the stranger, or -cancellation of debt burdens. Within the inextricable maze of poverty and abundance of global resources, the gap between rich and poor continues to grow. 2. The disparity between the accumulation of extreme wealth and the inescapability of extreme poverty offends the dignity of human beings, is an
affront to the common good, and tends toward disastrous cyclical misery. The effects of poverty are both blatant and insidious: -malnutrition, - family rupture -ill health, - social exclusion -illiteracy, - social violence -unemployment , - desperate migration -homelessness, -constant anxiety for childrens future.
Women and children bear the heaviest burdens of poverty: Discrimination Human Trafficking Prostitution of women and girls. 3. We have a vision that all persons, with special awareness of women and girls, ought to share in the economic, social
and spiritual benefits of our global wealth. This conviction rests on Judaic-Christian Scripture, Catholic Social Teaching, the UDHR, and the universal ethical code to treat others as you yourself would like to be treated. 4. We work to ERADICATE POVERTY while supporting Decent work Sustainable economies Environmental sustainability Reduction of inequalities Responsible production
Responsible consumption Holistic human development. . 4. We have a call to personal & communal conversion, aware of our own wealth and privileges. We understand that there is a prophetic call to
stand against systems and structures of economic injustice, some of which we are a part of. 5. We increase our CAPACITY -To understand dynamics of global economic exclusion -To advocate for economic improvement and social transformation -To expand programs and initiatives that bring practical relief from poverty.
