Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice

Washington, DC

 

About

Each year, the family of Jesuit high schools and colleges gathers in Washington, DC for the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. Organized by the Ignatian Solidarity Network, the IFTJ is an opportunity for both education and advocacy. Students will attend a conference featuring a host of speakers, both peer and professional, working for justice across various issues in the world today. Following the conference, attendees will convene on Capitol Hill for a day of action and advocacy, lobbying their respective representatives about the issues they have learned about the days prior.
