The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is the largest annual Catholic social justice gathering in the United States. Coordinated by the Ignatian Solidarity Network, the Teach-In brings together Jesuit colleges, high schools, parishes, and other partners to “learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together.”

What We Do

Learn

Reflect

The events of 2020 emphasize the need to gather as members of a community committed to social justice for continued education and action. During the weekend of Oct. 24-26, take a stand and join BC at the Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice – the largest annual Catholic social justice gathering in the United States. With this year's theme of “Prophetic Resilience: Breaking Down, Building Up,” we are challenged to break down biases and unfair privileges so that we can build up our individual and collective capacities for healing and justice.
