Loretto Community Endorses Colorado Community Rights Amendment
The Loretto Community Forum in its October 2015 meeting voted to endorse the Colorado Community Rights Amendment.
In her letter to the proponents, Loretto President Pearl McGivney quoted paragraphs 144 and 179 of Laudato Si’, then added the following:
“Especially where questions must be decided that may put at risk the public and ecological health of families and communities or their abilities to include and support their own labor force, welcome the stranger, and care for the impoverished, it is essential that the human beings who live and raise their families in these communities be the ones to decide, if they choose. They will be the ones to live out the consequences.”
