She is a religious leader, attorney and poet with extensive experience in public policy and advocacy for systemic change. Among her accomplishments while at NETWORK was the writing of the famous “Nuns’ Letter,” considered by many as critically important in convincing Congress to support the Affordable Care Act, and organizing and leading NETWORK’s “Nuns on the Bus” trips across the country to support economic justice and immigration reform.

Sister Campbell has received numerous awards and has been the keynote or featured speaker at many large gatherings, including the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
