The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the domestic anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops founded in 1970 to fulfill the mission of educating the masses on poverty and its causes.The United States Catholic Conference (USCC) was founded in 1966 as a secular arm of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB), in order to fulfill the new requirements for national conferences of bishops. The USCC focued on the work in society at large, while the NCCB resolved to solve internal ecclesiastical concerns. The two organizations merged together to form the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in 2002. 

"If you want peace, work for justice" was a quote made by Pope VI (1897-1978) in his message for the Celebration of the Day of Peace on January 1, 1972.
