UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, OH – Erin Brown joined the Ignatian Solidarity Network staff in mid-August. She will serve as ISN’s program director, overseeing the growing lineup of ISN programs, including the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. Brown joins a growing ISN team, including former program director Kim (Miller) Coleman, who will be transitioning to a new role as integrated marketing director.
Brown is a graduate of the College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota with a degree in theology and Hispanic studies, and is originally from the Milwaukee area. After graduation, Brown moved to the Peruvian Andes as a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC). As a volunteer, she worked in after school programming for elementary school students at Parroquia San Pedro Apóstol in Andahuaylillas. Most recently, she was a member of the admissions team at Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, WI. While in Milwaukee, she also served as a support person for the local Jesuit Volunteer community. She recently relocated to Northeast Ohio to join the Ignatian Solidarity Network staff.
“Erin brings invaluable organizational skills and a strong sense of the Jesuit network from her time at Marquette University High School, as well as a passion for faith-based social justice education and advocacy nurtured during her time as member of JVC,” said Christopher Kerr, ISN executive director. “We are excited to welcome her to the Ignatian family and for the contributions that she will bring.”
The Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) is a national social justice networking, education, and advocacy organization animated by the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the witness of the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador and their companions. ISN was founded in 2004 and is a lay-led 501(c)(3) organization working in partnership with over 80 Jesuit universities, high schools, and parishes, along with many other Catholic institutions and social justice partners.
