A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

We are hearing much fly through the air these days about our domestic budget. What will be cut, kept and even increased is a labyrinth of values that right now range from conservative to very conservative.  This is an important conversation and there is much at risk right now including affordable housing and public broadcasting.

What it seems we are not hearing are the voices of those who will be impacted and the voices of people around the world who already live in poverty due to many of the economic choices industrialized countries make. The video below pulls back the lens a little bit and looks at what is happening globally with poverty and where our real hope may lie. Join Vandana Shiva in exploring what a real domestic budget that links to a global economy may need to consider.
