Over 800 Ignatian Family Advocates Call for Social Justice on Capitol Hill

"This year’s Teach-In and lobbying came at a significant time for faith-based advocacy in our country,” said Christopher Kerr, executive director of the Ignatian Solidarity Network. “Not only were IFTJ participants be moved by powerful speeches and prayers, but their advocacy on Capitol Hill made a difference. Now is the time for humane comprehensive immigration reform, greater respect for minimum-wage workers, and action in support of our most vulnerable neighbors.”
