Who We Are

Exploring Intersections: Catholic Sisters on Racism, Migration and Climate is a collaborative project of LCWR Region 10, which includes congregations in Iowa, eastern Missouri and Nebraska, joined by a few additional congregations from Wisconsin.

Founded in 1956, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) represents nearly 80 percent of Catholic women religious in the United States. As a support system and corporate voice for leaders of institutes of women religious (Catholic sisters), LCWR develops leadership, promotes collaboration within church and society, and serves as a voice for systemic change.

In active response to the 2015-2022 Resolution of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), Region X of LCWR set out in spring of 2020 to create a plan to address societal injustice with awareness, advocacy and action; to create communion without controversy; and to offer insight with intent to effect change.
