Ignatian Solidarity Network Programs

Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) promotes social justice leadership and advocacy among students, alumni, and other emerging leaders from Jesuit schools.

Ignatian Family Teach-In For Justice

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) 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 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.

The events of the past two years emphasize the need to gather as members of a community committed to social justice for continued education and action. On October 16, take a stand with us as part of the largest annual Catholic social justice gathering in the United States.

Participants will receive access to an on-demand library of all virtual conference speakers, supplemental materials, and virtual exhibitor materials through June 1, 2022.

Feel free to view more information about the IFTJ Schedule, here.

It is our hope that all student participants will be inspired to take action after the Teach-In is over.  A few examples include participating in a "De Colores", leading LMU's Advocacy Teach-In, or publishing a reflection about their experience, just to name a few.
