Abstract
In response to the larger movements in the Society of Jesus and the world, the Creighton Center for Service and Justice formed an Advocacy Team in August of 2009. It quickly became a vehicle for students to live out the mission of being for and with the poor and marginalized whom they often encountered through their service experiences. Advocacy is a key aspect of how we live “a faith that does justice,” an essential part of Ignatian Spirituality. We hope to inspire students to analyze, engage, and challenge the structural systems that often perpetuate injustice in our local, national, and international communities. The CCSJ Advocacy Team emphasizes four current justice issues chosen based on national and international Jesuit Priorities, our experiences, relationships, reading the ‘signs of the times’ and discernment. Our priority issues are immigrants and refugees, peace/non-violence, poverty/economic justice and sustainability/ environmental justice.
