  • Lena Woltering will outline the new strategic vision of Call To Action and Scripture Scholar Roger Karban will explain how that new vision parallels the early Christian community�s vision of church. In surfacing the problems which prompted our ancient Christian authors to write, we find some amazing similarities in the problems facing today�s Catholic Church. Second and third generation Christians were very much influenced by the signs of the time. They deliberately chose to live their lives in tension of new theologies and evolving faith. Only those willing to change remained. We church reformers are their direct descendents and live in similar tension as we recognize our own call from the Spirt.
  • Lena Woltering has been active in Church Reform and Social Justice work for many years. She served on the National Board of Call To Action for eleven years and was Coordinator of Fellowship of Southern Illinois Laity (FOSIL), a local CTA affiliate, from 1993 to 2003. She served on the State Board of the Illinois Death Penalty Moratorium Project, which was successful in persuading state leaders to halt executions while the entire capital-punishment process in Illinois is examined. She also worked in prison ministry with the Missouri group Residents Encounter Christ and served on the board of Seeds of Hope, a ministry advocating for people with disabilities. Lena currently does local chapter organizing for Call To Action and travels the country helping folks organize local lay synods. As that movement picks up, she hopes that a National Lay Synod for all of the People of God can be convened in a few years. A native of Southern Illinois, Lena currently divides her time between Belleville, Illinois and Fort Wayne, Indiana, where her husband is currently employed.
  • Roger Karban, of the Belleville, Illinois diocese, was ordained a priest in Rome in December of 1964. He received a licentiate in Theology from Gregorian University in Rome and did his doctoral work in Scripture at St. Louis University. His diocesan work includes Director of the Diaconate Program, Secretary of the Belleville Diocesan Marriage Tribunal, and Religion teacher at three high schools. He has conducted three on-going adult Scripture classes in the diocese for 40 years and has taught Scripture courses at Southern Illinois University, John A. Logan College, and Notre Dame University. He currently teaches at St. Louis University and Southwestern Illinois College. Fr. Karban has been the Administer of Our Lady of Good Council Parish in Renault, Illinois since 1988. He writes a weekly commentary on the Sunday Scripture readings that appears in diocesan newspapers, and conducts retreats, seminars and workshops around the country.

  • Increasingly punitive enforcement policy and the absence of just immigration reform continue to reshape the cultural, political and economic landscape in the U.S. Through their various lenses as journalist, activist, community organizer and immigrant advocate, Herrera, Honor�, M�jica, and Neumann-Ortiz offer concrete suggestions for action as they highlight the burden carried by immigrant families, the Undocumented, Unafraid youth movement, the growing stress on border communities, and the high price we all pay if our congregations, our neighborhoods, our nation fail to grapple with this pressing concern.
  • Jose Herrera, is 26 years of age and a single parent of his son, Josue Herrera, an American citizen who is nine years old. Unlike his son, Jose was born in M�xico and came to the United States when he was eight years old. He came to this country because his parents, who were already here, wanted a better education and future for him, something that is very difficult to accomplish in his home country. Jose grew up in Chicago and considered it his home�until an unfortunate event in his life occurred in 2008 and Jose suddenly faced the prospect of being separated from everything he knew.
  • Los Angeles native and journalist Marcel Honor� has spent the past four years as a reporter for The Desert Sun newspaper in Palm Springs, Ca.
  • Born and raised in Mexico, Jorge M�jica has lived in the United States since 1987. An awarded journalist, he currently publishes an opinion column printed in over 30 newspapers in Mexico and the United States. Since 2006, M�jica has been the most visible face in the movement to achieve comprehensive immigration reform and legalization for some 12 million undocumented immigrants in the country.
  • Christine Neumann-Ortiz is the founding Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera, a low-wage and immigrant workers center with chapters in Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin.
  • Ms. Neumann-Ortiz is recognized as a national leader in immigration reform serving on the board of a national coalition called Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), the Wisconsin Legalization Coalition and Wisconsin Citizen Action. She organized the largest political march in Wisconsin history on May 1, 2007, with over 80,000 people supporting her campaign for humane immigrant policies. Ms. Neumann-Ortiz organized a march on May 1, 2006 where 70,000 participants marched on Milwaukee streets and 30,000 participants on March 23, 2006. Under her leadership, the energy of these mobilizations was effectively converted into electoral power with a record 32% increase in targeted Latino wards in Milwaukee and Racine in November, 2006. She also coordinates national actions around immigration. Neumann-Ortiz serves on the board of a national coalition of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), which represents over 300 advocacy groups.
