The Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice

The Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice serves as a liaison between the Fordham community and the local communities. The Center helps connect students to service and social justice related community experiences through volunteer, service learning, and nonprofit internship opportunities. Within our Jesuit and Catholic tradition, we encourage students to stand in solidarity with those on the margins and help create a better world for all of us.

Apply to the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice!

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. Now in its 19th year, the IFTJ has a rich history rooted in honoring the Jesuits and their companions who were martyred in El Salvador in 1989. This year's IFTJ event will be held in Washington D.C from November 12-14th 2016. Fordham's delegation to IFT will be fundraising together to cover the cost of the trip, however, any portion of the cost of attendance that is not covered by our fundraising efforts will fall under the responsibility of each student.
