The Catholic Conference of Illinois (CCI) represents the Catholic Church at the Illinois Capitol. CCI has developed and maintains a grassroots e-mail advocacy network called the Illinois Catholic Advocacy Network, or I-CAN for short. The Catholic Conference sends out occasional emails to I-CAN subscribers in an effort to keep lay Catholics informed about state and federal issues that impact the Church and her mission.
