PICO National Network (People Improving Communities Through Organizing) is partnering with Faith in Public Life and members of the DC Catholic Coalition to organize a Catholic Day of Action with Dreamers at the Capitol (Russell Senate Building Rotunda) on Tuesday, February 27 at 10:30 a.m.

Participants will include Catholic Dreamers, Catholic clergy, religious brothers and women religious, Catholic lay leaders and a wide range of supporters. Several Catholic bishops have also been invited to attend. The event will include prayer and singing among 100-200 participants, and will culminate in nonviolent civil disobedience which will be exercised by a cohort of Catholic leaders.

The Catholic Day of Action with Dreamers will include:
8:30 a.m. — Private Mass for participants in the Day of Action at St. Peter's on Capitol Hill

10:30 a.m. — Press Conference across from the Russell Senate Building

11:30 a.m. — Nonviolent Action in the Russell Building Rotunda

12:30 p.m. — Hill visits to Congressional offices organized by participants

The nearby Lutheran Church of the Reformation (212 East Capitol St NE) will be available from 12-5 p.m. and will serve as a staging area for participants heading up to the Hill for congressional visits — to get background and leave-behind materials prior to their visits. People can also have a box lunch there, rest in between visits, and debrief with one another.
