Sister Simone Campbell has been a principal spokesperson for "Priorities for a Faithful Budget," a document born of interreligious collaboration that promotes comprehensive and compassionate budget principles for restoring economic opportunity, ensuring adequate resources for the country's fiscal needs, providing true security, reducing poverty and hardship, caring for the environment, improving access to health care, and taking responsibility for future generations. She explains how this budget reflects Catholic social teaching and why and how it can be promoted by Americans of different religious traditions and secular humanists alike. Following the lecture, Rabbi Amy Eilberg and Nahid Khan offer brief responses to "Priorities for a Faithful Budget" from their respective Jewish and Muslim perspectives.
