Reform group demands return of CCHD grant to DC advocacy group

Catholic World News - November 02, 2012

A coalition of Catholics dedicated to reform of the US bishops’ anti-poverty program has called upon a Washington, DC group to return a $50,000 grant.

The Reform CCHD Now (RCN) coalition argues that the DC Grassroots Empowerment Project (Empower DC) has defrauded the bishops’ charitable agency by promoting abortion, homosexuality, and prostitution. Such advocacy would violate the terms of the CCHD’s new guidelines for recipients.

RCN contends that Empower DC has not only worked for acceptance of abortion and homosexuality, but also distributed a guide for young women advising them how to engage in prostitution and drug use without attracting notice from police.
