Ignatian Solidarity Network Welcomes Shaina Aber & David Koelsch to the Board of Directors

In late July the Ignatian Solidarity Network Board of Directors unanimously voted to welcome Shaina Aber and David Koelsch as directors. Aber and Koelsch will serve three year terms. The Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) is a national social justice network inspired by the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. ISN was founded in 2004 and is a lay-led 501(c)3 organization working in partnership with Jesuit universities, high schools, and parishes, along with many other Catholic institutions and social justice partners.


Reflecting on the Teach-In Crosses

On the wall in my office, there are two simple crosses. They are made out of Home Depot paint stirrers that I spray-painted white, and they have the names “Emilia Claros, 35” and “Julia Claros, 30” written across them. Students often come into my office and ask what they are – “Is that some sort of arts and crafts project?” Answering these questions always becomes a great teachable moment for me.
