Nuns on the Bus roll into Shively Area Ministries with message for voters

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- They may not look like your typical political lobbyist, but they say that's the point. Sisters with the national "Nuns on the Bus" tour stopped by Shively Area Ministries this morning to get their message across locally.

The goal of the bus tour is to encourage people of all income levels to get out and vote. The sisters say they are fighting back against the influx of big money in politics.

"We're on the road to say no. Our democracy requires us to stand up and say we are the voters. We the people will make this decision. We won't be driven away by big money," Sister Simone Campbell said.

The Catholic sisters are visiting 36 cities as part of the bus tour.

The group held a Town Hall meeting at Wayside Christian Mission at 7 Wednesday night.
