2019 Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice
Open to Jesuit students for travel to the event November 14-18, 2019 in Washington, D.C.
What is the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice?
It is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to gather in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.
Now in its 21st year, the IFTJ has a rich history rooted in honoring the Jesuits and their companions who were martyred in El Salvador in 1989.
