McLaughlin Social Justice Institute of Lasallian Practice
I consider that the most important things in our association are not the structures, or the measures to ensure a certain efficiency, but a goal: answering the needs of children and young people, especially the poor. What matters most are persons.Brother Alvaro Rodriguez Echeverria, FSC
The McLaughlin Social Justice Institute of Lasallian Practice (MSJI) is a two-week intensive academic, community, and field experience program hosted at Christian Brothers University where students will learn how their own social identities impact their engagement with others. Blending classroom instruction, visits from leading experts in law and medicine, and trips throughout the Memphis community, students will learn about issues pertaining to social justice and inequity, particularly for people living in poverty and on the margins. Two sessions – one for high school students and the second for college students – will engage participants from across the United States in an exciting, life-changing opportunity to immerse oneself in learning about some of the most critical issues of our day such as generational poverty and homelessness, food scarcity, challenges faced by immigrants, and inequity in education and healthcare.
