Ignatian Advocacy Month Information Meetings

February is Ignatian Family Advocacy Month (IFAM), a chance for Creighton students, and students from from Jesuit high schools and colleges all across the country to meet with their local and national representatives to advocate for one of three national priorities. We’d love to have you participate in one of these legislative visits with us.

Anyone interested in IFAM participation, please come to a meeting on Tuesday January 29th, from 9-10:30 in Harper 3023

Remember, you don’t have to be an expert to participate in your democracy, so don’t be nervous about coming
