The B.C. Catholic has a story from Catholic News Service about Nuns on the Bus tour, which is taking aim at proposed budget cuts in the U.S. affecting struggling Americans:
The big colorful bus sponsored by Network, a Catholic social justice lobby group from Washington, stopped in Dubuque June 19, the second day of its tour through nine states to alert people to how cuts in the proposed Ryan budget would harm those already struggling. 
The 15-day tour, dubbed by its organizers as "Nuns on the Bus: Nuns Drive for Faith Family and Fairness," stopped at the parking lot of Maria House, which provides emergency transitional housing for women, to highlight the work of Catholic sisters and their collaborators whose ministries serve the poor.
