Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ)
October 28-30, 2023
Washington, DC

Applications for Loyola's 2023 delegation to the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice have closed. Stay tuned for ways to engage virtually!


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.

In 2023, the advocacy issues we will focus on are:

  • Humane Migration Reform (immigration justice)
  • Care for Creation (environmental justice)

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice takes place in Washington, DC each fall. A delegation from Loyola is selected through an application process.
