Ignatian Family
Teach-In for Justice

November 3-5, 2018
Washington, D.C.

Be part of the largest annual Catholic social justice gathering
in the United States.

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.

Now in its 20th year, the IFTJ has a rich history rooted in honoring the Jesuits and their companions who were martyred in El Salvador in 1989.

Speakers

3 keynotes.
7 Ignatian network speakers.

40+ breakout presentations.

Get ready to be challenged, engaged, and inspired to be agents for justice and solidarity.

The Courage to Journey Together as an Intersectional Community

Our call at IFTJ 2018 is to journey to the intersections as disciples and allies, as listeners and advocates. We are brought together in courage and companionship so that we may respond to Pope Francis’s invitation to, “try to listen and be silent in order to make space for the beauty of God.” We will make space for pain and healing; and we will move forward with momentum towards the justice, beauty, and hope necessary to overcome oppression in all its forms.

As we meet at the intersections, we remember Pope Francis’s compelling advice: “This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.” May we journey together towards the Good.
