Call to Action-Rio Grande Valley (CTA-RGV)  CTA-RGV is a local chapter of Call to Action, a national organization that began in 1976 as an outgrowth of the United States Conference of Bishops Call to Action Conference.

At the conference, more than 100 bishops were among the 1,340 voting delegates and the 1,500 observers.  At the end of three days of discussion and debate, the assembly declared "the church must stand up to the chronic racism, sexism, militarism, and poverty in modern society. And to do so in a credible way the church must reevaluate its positions on issues like celibacy for priests, the male-only clergy, homosexuality, birth control, and the involvement of every level of the church in important decisions."  Website
