Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice

IFTJ 2022 - October 22-24, 2022
Washington, DC

Loyola's 2022 Delegation had a fabulous experience of learning about and advocating for justice! Join us in 2023!


The annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) gathers members of the Ignatian Family in solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate in the context of social justice. Participants from Jesuit schools, parishes, and social ministries are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. After learning about justice issues and connecting them to Catholic Social Tradition, IFTJ participants engage in advocacy to affirm justice in policy and practice.

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice takes place in Washington, DC each fall, and applications open on the first day of classes.

The application details full expectations of participants, including the participation fee ($175), mandatory preparatory and wrap-up sessions before and after the Teach-In.
