Saturday, August 2, 2014 - 7:00pm

The Sisters of Divine Providence presented Simone Campbell, SSS with the 2014 Ketteler Award for Social Justice.

Sister Simone was recognized for her commitment to peace-building, immigration reform, healthcare reform, and economic justice. Sister Simone is the executive director of NETWORK. In 2012, she spoke at the Democratic National Convention, and was instrumental in organizing the Nuns on the Bus tour to lobby for passage of a “faithful budget” that would promote comprehensive and compassionate budget principles. Sister Simone reflects Bishop Ketteler’s unwavering justice work for the marginalized and disenfranchised in Germany in the nineteenth century.
