The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) in its latest round of grants gave funds to a group that is allied with the largest Socialist organization in the United States and also affiliated with another group that has Marxist, pro-abortion and LGBT ties, a new Lepanto Institute report says.
The Indianapolis Worker’s Justice Center (IWJC) received $35,000 in CCHD funds, according to the 2016-2017 list of CCHD grantees. It is the first-ever grant for IWJC from the US Bishops’ domestic anti-poverty department.
The Lepanto Institute referenced a 2015 report it had compiled on CCHD’s Marxist foundation in its report released recently.
“As with before, it is clear that the CCHD either did not actually vet the organization before giving it a grant,” Lepanto Institute president Michael Hichborn stated regarding CCHD’s awarding funds to IWJC, “or it willfully turned a blind eye to the distinctly Marxist and pro-abortion character it publicly holds.”
