Social Justice Advocacy
The Mitty Advocacy Project is a team of students who work as advocates to gather information and assist with legislative measures to help provide support for marginalized people throughout California and the U.S. In keeping with the core values of Catholic Social Teaching, The Mitty Advocacy Project lobbies legislators for the poor, elderly and those who are suffering from social injustices. Students receive training with legislative sessions, developing public awareness, and organizing public events. Interested students, please come and see Mr. Michael Accorsi for more information.
Shepherd is an organization within Archbishop Mitty High School’s Campus Ministry Department whose purpose is to provide a safe environment where students can explore dynamics that socially marginalize people within and outside the AMHS community. The group provides a forum and community to those concerned with difficult issues related to social inclusion. Shepherd recognizes that many students cope with stress, fear, harassment and discrimination due to stereotypes that depersonalize the individual. Shepherd hopes to rid our community of prejudice, not through condemnation, but through education. Shepherd meets every Wednesday afterschool, providing a space where students can relax, discuss, and share. For more information, contact Ms. Jennifer Salmon.
