Kate Carter has lived a life dedicated to social justice. She became a Jesuit Volunteer in 1978, serving in Montana. She went on to work for JVC and became deeply involved in Central America solidarity work. She was a key member of a group that was bringing news of the oppression of the poor in Central America to faith communities in the U.S. during the tumultuous 1980s and 90s.
We talked about what she’s learned from observing democratic elections in Central America, how those learnings apply here in the U.S., Catholic connections across borders, her experience of JVC, and where she discovered her passion for hospitality and community. Listen in.
