How Will Young People Shape the 2024 Election and the Election Shape Our Future?

Tuesday, April 9
Damen 217


Join CSA for this conversation and online panel exploring how students like you can and will impact our future through the 2024 election. The gathering begins at 5:30pm with conversation and pizza. We'll then watch an online panel hosted by Salt and Light and by the Ignatian Solidarity Network from 6-7pm, then debrief until 7:30pm. Come when you can and stay for as long as you can. Whether you are an avid voter, unregistered, or a political skeptic, come join the conversation!

Loyola alum Flavio Bravo will be one of the panelists!


Advocacy Madness

This spring, Loyola is taking part in Advocacy Madness! Hosted by the Ignatian Solidarity Network, Advocacy Madness encourages us to take action to support just migration and enviornment policy. Are you, your RSO, your class, or other group working for justice around the environment or migration? Let us know!






The annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) gathers members of the Ignatian Family (Jesuit schools, parishes, social ministries) in solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate in the context of social justice. Keynote and student speakers address issues such as:

  • Mass incarceration
  • Racial Justice
  • Domestic Poverty
  • Worker's Rights
  • Humane Immigration Reform
  • Sustainable Environmental Practices

Gather in Washington, D.C., with fellow faithful citizens seeking to make real change in our world. The IFTJ is sponsored by the Ignatian Solidarity Network.

See the site for more details, including the application.

The CSA supports Loyola's Service and Faith Learning Community (SFLC). The Service and Faith Learning Community provides a holistic encounter with the Jesuit values or service and faith for a small community of first-year students. Students in the SFLC live together in one of Loyola's residence halls, take a couple of courses together, and engage in out of the classroom program and activities.
