#StandWithSisters campaign

#StandWithSisters social media campaign begins March 8 and runs through March 14. It is a part of National Catholic Sisters Week and Women’s History Month. Four Good Shepherd Sisters are participating in the St. Louis Catholic Sisters initiative. 

The campaign celebrates the ways women religious and their supporters stand up for social justice in their communities. #StandWithSisters provides an avenue for Catholic Sisters and laypeople who work with them to share their personal narratives of what it means to be compelled by the Holy Spirit and their Catholic faith to right social injustices.

The #StandWithSisters initiative includes video, photographs, personal narrative, and billboards around the St. Louis metro area. The billboards carry a variety of messages from St. Louis Catholic Sisters, including,

“We stand with IMMIGRANTS.”

“We stand for THE EARTH.”

“We stand against OPPRESSION.”

The initiative runs through the month of March in recognition of National Catholic Sisters Week and Women’s History Month.
