The Roundtable Association of Diocesan Social Action Directors is the national professional association for those who staff Catholic bishops on matters of justice and peace. Its mission is to provide professional support to members through education, formation, professional relationships, and management development. Associate membership is available to religious order peace and justice directors.
The association is committed to deepening the capacity of social action directors to engage in the social mission of the church. Social action directors founded the Roundtable Association of Social Action Directors in 1985. For its first 25 years, the Roundtable was a program of the National Pastoral Life Center in New York City before transitioning to an independent organization.
