Solidarity on Tap Series

Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, Jesuit Volunteer Corps (based in Baltimore, MD), and Ignatian Solidarity Network welcome those connected to the Jesuits and the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola (FJVs, Jesuit school alumni, Jesuit parish members, etc.) to join us for a simple gathering for socializing and social justice. Solidarity on Tap events are held throughout the country- perhaps there is one coming to a city near you.

March 26: Los Angeles, CA We will have a reflection by Joseph Tomás Mckellar, Co-Director of PICO California. Joseph Tomás Mckellar has been leading efforts to grow grassroots organizing capacity for racial, economic, health, and environmental equity across California.
March 27: San Diego, CA We will have a reflection on the theme “No One Stands Alone: Responding to and Standing With Immigrants in San Diego” by Kevin Malone, Exec Dir of the San Diego Organizing Project.
April 9: Chicago, IL We will have a reflection by Eric Immel, SJ, Associate Dean for Student Success, Arrupe College of Loyola University Chicago. Eric Immel was raised in Green Bay, and despite his best efforts to remain indifferent, the Packers have a stronghold on his emotional well-being.
April 11: Portland,OR Pedro Moreno, the Outreach Worker for Verde, will speak about the work Verde does to support communities in Portland building environmental wealth through Social Enterprise, Outreach and Advocacy, and thinking to the intersection of social and environmental justice.
