Each fall Creighton students gather with thousands of people from Jesuit high schools, colleges, parishes and other Ignatian organizations in Washington, D.C. at the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. This event keeps alive the legacy of many who have worked for justice, particularly the legacy of the six Jesuits, their housekeeper, and her daughter who were all killed in El Salvador in 1989. Come join this three-day learning experience where we meet today’s prophets confronting injustice, poverty, and oppression both nationally and internationally; network with other justice-oriented students; and have our voices heard through legislative visits in the nation’s capitol.
The Ignatian Family Teach-In is put on by the Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN), an organization that works to promote and enhance the advocacy efforts of Jesuit institutions like Creighton. More information about this year’s Teach-In can be found on the ISN Website.
