Our Vision

Mobilize a network which:

•Provides resources to Jesuit ministries engaging in social justice education and advocacy.

•Engages thousands of individuals affiliated with the Ignatian family to be lifelong contemplative advocates for the common good.

•Partners with faith-based and civic organizations committed to justice, peace and care for our common home.

•Promotes solidarity with the poor—especially in the Americas—among Jesuit ministries.


NEW ISN LogoOften referred to as “The Tent,” the ISN logo expresses the importance of solidarity and unity among the Ignatian family and its affiliates. Further, it symbolizes the ever-welcoming “home” to all who continue to dialogue and to seek positive change as an extension of one’s deeper desire to more fully live a “faith that does justice.”

The idea of the tent originated from Bob Holstein, a compassionate and devoted Companion to both the Society of Jesus and its lay collaborators. His contagious desire to create a more just world was evident in both his faith and his actions.
