About Catholic Mobilizing Network (CMN)
Catholic Mobilizing Network is a national organization that mobilizes Catholics and all people of good will to value life over death, to end the use of the death penalty, to transform the U.S. criminal justice system from punitive to restorative, and to build capacity in U.S. society to engage in restorative practices. Through education, advocacy and prayer, and based on the Gospel value that every human is created in the image and likeness of God, CMN expresses the fundamental belief that all those who have caused or been impacted by crime should be treated with dignity. CMN works in close collaboration with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and lives the Spirit of Unity of its sponsor, the Congregation of St. Joseph.
We share our message at the national and local level, working closely with state Catholic conferences, dioceses, congregations, Catholic organizations and secular state-based organizations. Our committed staff is based in our Washington DC office conveniently located near the Brookland/CUA metro station.
