Valley Interfaith Project (VIP) – Casa Core Team

Valley Interfaith Project – Casa Core Team

Our Catholic faith calls us to work in the public arena on matters that affect the dignity of the human person, and to work in solidarity with the most vulnerable in our society.

Casa members are invited to participate in The Valley Interfaith Project (VIP) – a broad-based, non-partisan organization of institutions across greater Phoenix that trains and empowers people to affect change for families at the state and local level.

VIP is committed to developing the capacity of ordinary people so they can be active participants in all levels of our democracy including: understanding local concerns, researching and presenting issues and developing the ability to interact effectively with public officials. As a founding member of the VIP, the Casa is integral to this Valley-wide organization. Participation by Casa members furthers our social justice imperative to engage in creating a just society.

Meetings take place once a month on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 pm.  Next meetings: September 14 and October 19.

Healthcare Civic Academy:  November 8, 2017 from 6:30-8:30 pm.
