J20 Inaugural Protest - Catholic orgs
URGENT!! I desperately need to know fast about ANY catholic or orthodox christian organization that is supporting, endorsing, and/or participating in the protest on J20 in DC. Any catholic group that's supporting this protest, I need this info really bad.

Why? My school (catholic) might be able to take us but because of possible conservative parent complaints they need a "catholic justification", that is, a catholic organization that's supporting the protest (Like pax christi, which is not supporting this one). From the admin's point of view, this is a backup to point to if any conservative catholics get annoyed by the trip. But the trip to DC is doubtful of happening unless I can come up with an org that's supporting it! Google churned out nothing (for me anyway) which is why I ask you guys if you know. There are usually a lot of religious organizations supporting protests with an anti-war tone, I hope this is no exception.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks!
