About the event

Book Signing Sister Simone Campbell Hunger for Hope Saturday, July 27 from 2-4 PM

One of the organizers of the "Nuns on the Bus" campaign shows how faith supports action in a world in great need of both. The chaotic individualism of these times demands a prayer practice that summons a prophetic response in community with those who are marginalized in our fractured economic system and broken world. Hunger for Hope explores the quest for a justice that works for all, and explores what it means to be “holy” in today’s world.

Sister Simone Campbell (Roman Catholic Sister of Social Service) is a religious leader, attorney, author and recipient of a 2022 Presidential Medal of Freedom (the United States’ highest civilian honor). She has extensive experience in public policy rooted in the lived experiences of people at the economic margins of society. Now she is an Emerson Elder with the Emerson Collective and co-leads “Understanding US” focused on political healing. For 17 years she was executive director of NETWORK, Lobby for Catholic Social Justice and leader of Nuns on the Bus.

Her healthcare policy work was seminal in passage of the Affordable Care Act. She has received numerous awards including the “Defender of Democracy Award” from the Parliamentarians for Global Action. Prior to Washington, this native Californian did state advocacy and for 18 years was the founder of the Oakland Community Law Center. In 1995 she was elected the leader of her community the Sisters of Social Service and served in that capacity until 2000. She wrote two award winning books are A Nun on the Bus (2014) and Hunger for Hope (2020)
