"It is urgent and it is something that no segment of the global community can effectively address alone. It is time for global leaders to understand that this must be at the top of every agenda with regard to every other issue."

- Carol Fay, religious studies teacher at SSND-sponsored Academy of the Holy Angels, who marched with the sisters on Sunday. You can read their reasons for marching here.
