Ignatian Solidarity Network to Continue Legacy of Education for Justice
BY ISN STAFF | March 12, 2019
ISN is excited to announce the recent acquisition of Education for Justice (EFJ), an award-winning global digital subscription membership service providing resources for those who wish to study, teach, and practice Catholic social tradition.
Since 2001, EFJ has helped teachers, social action directors, parish members, campus ministers, and others in leadership roles meet the challenge of sharing Catholic social tradition with wide audiences. With thousands of resources such as lesson plans, film and book discussion guides, prayer services, bulletin inserts, lectionary reflections, and fact sheets, EFJ is a vast library with content that responds to the signs of the times.
Originally a project of the Center of Concern, EFJ found a new home at the Ignatian Solidarity Network in early 2019 after the Center closed its doors in November 2018. The Center was established by Pedro Arrupe, S.J., and Joseph Cardinal Bernardin and has been a bastion of Catholic social thought and conversation since its founding in 1971.
Brenna Davis joined the Ignatian Solidarity Network staff in February to oversee the project. She will serve as ISN’s educational resource and environmental justice campaign coordinator, specifically overseeing the Education for Justice online platform and ISN’s Ignatian Carbon Challenge.
Davis is a graduate of Boston College and brings years of experience working in the areas of education, ministry, and environmental advocacy. She served in Cleveland, OH as a Jesuit Volunteer and then as a teacher and coach at Saint Martin de Porres High School, Cleveland’s Cristo Rey. She has also served as a campus minister and is a certified spiritual director.
“We look forward to continuing the legacy of Pedro Arrupe and the Center of Concern through our work with Education for Justice,” shared Davis.
Education for justice is a challenging mission. Long live the legacy of the late Padre Pedro Arrupe.
