BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES

BtB advocates for social justice particularly in the area of Affordable Housing

AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT

Beyond the Boundaries is an Archdiocesan program to mobilize the support of our Catholic people for inclusive housing policies. Working with various civic organizations, other churches, and political leaders, the program advocates for public policies that will enable rich, middle class, and poor people to live together in the same neighborhoods and communities so the benefits of good services and schools can be shared.

MAKING AN IMPACT

People in Church

PARISH BASED WORKSHOPS

As catholics, we are called to hunger and thirst for justice. Beyond the Boundaries seeks to engage with groups in productive dialogue to learn about systemic racial injustices in the Baltimore Metropolitan Region and facilitate advocacy opportunities to effectuate meaningful change for our region.

ADVOCACY OPPORTUNITIES

We are also called, as individuals and as a faith community, to bring Christ’s message of love and justice to bear on public policies that impact us all. Beyond the Boundaries stays abreast of local advocacy opportunities and provides Action Alerts for members.

LISTEN AND LEARN EVENTS

We believe that Knowledge is power. When we join together and learn from others who are leaders in the fight against racial injustices, we can better work towards meaningful change.

“…when I see the Catholic Church and many other groups and organizations come out and say maybe its time to look at this, that also, I think, should send a loud message out to everyone.” 

Tom Quirk, Baltimore County Councilman from District 1, said at the November HOME Act hearing
