The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. We gather each year in the spirit of the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador, using their lives and ministry as inspiration for discovering the injustices of today and how we might engage in them. The Teach-In is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.
Gonzaga Prep will be sending its first student cohort to the Teach-In this October! Students will have an opportunity to learn from experts, network with students from other schools, and attend sessions about advocacy and justice. On Monday, students will meet with Washington State elected officials to explain to them what justice issues are important to youth.
