Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice
"I consider it a duty to work for human rights. It is the duty of every human being who has the sensibility to the suffering of people."
- Segundo Montes, a Jesuit martyr from El Salvador
The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where students are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.
Over three days in Washington, D.C., students will listen to inspiring speakers, participate in break-out sessions, pray together, and spend one day advocating for legislation on Capitol Hill. The 2014 Teach-In will take place November 15-17, 2014.
NOTE: UDM students and affiliates must register through UDM's University Ministry office, NOT directly through the Ignatian Family Teach-In national website.(back to top)
