They spent their time working on practical skills of community organizing and learning how to engage local and governmental leaders in policies that humanize us all. This experience will expose the delegation to other ways our Jesuit schools are engaging in a faith that does justice.

In addition to attending a series of student-led workshops, the SI delegation met with staff from the offices of our CA senators, Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris.

This year's priority asks for Congress are:
