USA: Student Gathering Addresses Poverty and Racism in New Orleans

Students from Jesuit colleges and universities from across the US gathered at Loyola University New Orleans from 9th to 11th March for an Ignatian Family Teach-In to address issues of racism and poverty in the region and encourage students to confront these issues in their own communities. In addition to the Teach-In, entitled Rebuilding Communities: Facing Racism and Poverty, many students participated in service activities in New Orleans in the weeks before and after the gathering.
