As some of you may know, the Vatican's Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon Region will be held from October 6-27. "Since 2015, non-ordained religious brothers have been granted voting rights, while their canonical equals, women religious, are denied that privilege. This year, of the 185 voting members of the synod, 0 are women." Learn more at the article here.
CMSA is interested in planning an event or activity on campus to educate and advocate around this issue and you are invited to join us! We will host a meeting this Tuesday at 3:30pm in the Social Action Suite (Kelly 203) to discuss it further and brainstorm what event or action we could take. I invite you to join us and invite anyone else you think might be interested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
