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.

More events to come!

We are also beginning to collect letters from FJVs to give to the incoming JVs at the Sending Forth Banquet on Friday, August 9. These letters are a tradition started several years ago to offer words of wisdom, advice, stories, or support for the new JVs as they prepare to enter their service locales.

Letters can be short, long, specific to one community, or generalized for any incoming JVs. Letters to a specific JVs are also accepted.
Please mail your letters to JVC Northwest, PO Box 22125, Portland, OR 97269 or email them to Majo Sandi, our Alumni Relations and Marketing Manager, by Thursday August 1. Please include who the letter is intended for and your JV service information.
