FI and FAN Sign MOU
On Thursday 28 July 2011 Franciscans International (FI) and the Franciscan Action Network (FAN) publicly signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organisations. Over 100 Franciscans witnessed the signing during a breakfast meeting at the annual Franciscan Federation Conference in Milwaukee, US.
This important symbolic moment confirmed the collaborative work and networking that is already in existence between FI and FAN. FI is the voice of the global Franciscan Family at the United Nations and FAN works with American Franciscans at Capitol Hill in Washington, US. Both organisations lobby and advocate to address justice issues that impact negatively on the most vulnerable.
Br. John Doctor OFM, President of the International Board of Directors of FI, and Sr. Margaret Mary Kimmins OSF, President of the Board of Directors of FAN, signed the MOU as well as Sr. Denise Boyle fmdm, Executive Director of FI and Mr. Patrick Carolan, Executive Director of FAN on behalf of their respective organisations.
