What Is the Ignatian Family Teach-In?
The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is the largest annual Catholic social justice gathering in the United States.The Ignatian Family Teach-In takes place in Washington DC on a weekend in November. Coordinated by the Ignatian Solidarity Network, the Teach-In brings together colleges, high schools, parishes, and other partners within the larger Church community to “learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together.” Ths teach-in honors the lives of the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador and their companions murdered in 1989. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice as integrally linked
Keynote speakers address issues of concern, such as racism, immigration reform, mass incarceration, and environmental justice, etc. After two days of learning about justice issues, the participants head to Capitol Hill to share stories and facts and to advocate for more policies with elected officials.
