Our goal is to activate multi-issue Catholic voters and provide them—as well as candidates who are committed to the common good of lifting up the quality of life of all Americans—with the tools they need to be informed and to engage Catholic voters who are concerned about issues of social justice, immigration, climate change, and the scourge of White Christian Nationalism.

Finding Common Ground

Catholics for Common Good is a non-profit organization that seeks to create common ground at the intersection of faith and politics for Catholics by finding areas of agreement based on common ideals, such as respecting the dignity of all people and building community. We believe Catholics rooted in the Church’s social teachings can find common ground even if their approaches differ.

Our work is based on The Beatitudes

  1. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
  2. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
  3. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
  4. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
  5. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
  6. Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.
  7. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
  8. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
