2014 Ketteler Award: Simone Campbell, SSS

Saturday, August 2, 2014 - 7:00pm
  • Simone Campbell, SSS, 2014 Ketteler Award for Social Justice Recipient

On Saturday, August 2, at the Annual Assembly of the the Sisters of Divine Providence, Simone Campbell, SSS, will be presented with the 2014 Ketteler Award for Social Justice.

We recognize Sister Simone 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 she 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.

In 1998, the Sisters of Divine Providence instituted the Ketteler Award to honor individuals who demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice. The award, named for Wilhelm Emmanuel von Ketteler, Bishop of Mainz, Germany, and founder of the Congregation, is presented annually.
