Campaign goals

In recent synod, religious brothers have been given voting rights. Religious sisters have exactly the same official standing as religious brothers. Yet no sister has ever been given the same voting right. In October, the 2019 synod on Amazonia is planned in which we continue to advocate for religious sisters' right to cast their votes for the first time.
