Georgetown University’s Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life

Georgetown University's Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life is a unique effort to promote dialogue on Catholic social thought and national and global issues, build bridges across political, religious, and ideological lines, and encourage a new generation of Catholic lay leaders to see their faith as an asset in pursuing the common good.

Why We Invested

The Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University brings together leaders across multiple divisions to talk about the role of religion in public life. Democracy Fund has partnered with Georgetown for a dialogue series on “Faith and the Faithful in U.S. Politics,” and for a conference on polarization among U.S. Catholics. Our support will further empower this initiative to increase their ability to create unique partnerships to promote pluralism and overcome polarization in our democracy.

Total Commitment

2019: $50,000 over two years.
