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 San Francisco. 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 reflections on the theme “WALKING TOGETHER TOWARD A JUST, HOSPITABLE WORLD” by Laura Slattery, Executive Director of the Gubbio Project and Flavio Bravo, live-in volunteer at the Oakland Catholic Worker
