Solidarity on Tap is a simple gathering at a local pub for socializing and social justice. Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, and Ignatian Solidarity Network along with local partners welcome those connected to the Jesuits and the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola (FJV’s, Jesuit school alumni, Jesuit parish members, etc.) in Chicago. All Jesuit school alumni, Jesuit parish members, current & former Jesuit Volunteers, Ignatian Volunteer Corps members, Jesuit institution staff, Jesuits, and friends of the Ignatian network are welcome (21 and over please!).
Around 7:30 PM we will have a reflection on the theme “WALKING TOGETHER TOWARD A JUST, HOSPITABLE WORLD” by Susan Haarman, M.Div., Associate Director of Service Learning at Loyola University Chicago’s Center for Experiential Learning.
Solidarity on Tap Chicago is sponsored by:
Susan Haarman hails from Louisville, KY, but has lived in Milwaukee, Texas, Berkeley, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the fine city of Chicago. She was first exposed to Jesuit education as an undergraduate at Marquette University and has been connected to an Ignatian apostolate or Jesuit school as an employee or a student since 2000. She has a Masters in Divinity from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley and has spoken on a national level around Ignatian Pedagogy’s connection to personal growth and transformation, especially within the realm of service and service immersions. She has been working in higher education for almost 10 years, and this is actually her 5th year at Loyola. Previous to joining the CEL team, she served as the Faith and Justice Campus Minister, primarily in charge of the Alternative Break Immersion program. In her time in this position, she more than doubled the program. Susan is passionate about Jesuit education, service learning, and asking the big questions of how a university seeks to transform the social reality it also participates in.
