Past Seelos Grant Recipients
2019 grant recipients attended the Ignatian Justice Summit and the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. Amanda Judah (Boston College `19) said of her experience at the Summit:
The Ignatian Justice Summit was a powerful mix of reflection upon theories of activism in the Ignatian tradition and brainstorming for action plans. I feel well-equipped to bring advocacy events to my chapter of ASN.
2018 recipients attended the Ignatian Family Teach-in For Justice November 3-5, 2018. Pictured are Isabel Wallace-Green from Fordham University, Kathleen Hannick from Seattle University, Lucia Presencio-Ortiz from Loyola Andalucia, and Jordan Henderson from Loyola University Chicago.
One of the most important lessons I learned during the Teach-In was how to use our institution's Jesuit values and mission to our advantage while advocating for justice. -- Kathleen Hannick
I really enjoyed my time! The breakout sessions were extremely well done and had a really diverse group of offerings. I went to a Men in MeToo breakout, and two involving climate change/sustainable investing. Specifically for the MeToo one, it was extremely inspiring to see how many high school boys, especially those in all-boy schools, that were willing to speak up and participate in the event. I can bring back what I learned about sustainable investing since that is still an ongoing project at the Loyola campus. -- Jordan Henderson
I hope to share ideas of active advocating with my Chapter. While at IFTJ, I was inspired by stories of fellow students who passionately advocate on their campuses for issues that are prevalent in their communities. Whereas my voice as an individual may seem insignificant at times, the conference reminded me that every person can make a difference in both small and large ways, which are equally valuable. I hope to discourage complacency on my campus and challenge myself to actively advocate within my own daily life. -- Isabel Wallce Green
