JUSTICE (Jesuit University Students Together In Concerned Empowerment) is a Marquette University Student Organization dedicated to education and action surrounding social justice issues. We have led campaigns focusing on fair trade, gender equality, Sudan divestment, worker's rights, and other issues. Each year we hold a Social Justice Teach-In to promote awareness on campus, and send a group to Fort Benning, GA, for the annual School of the Americas Protest and Vigil.

Fair Trade Store Now Open / Music and Social Justice

A Fair Trade store is now open and operating in Milwaukee--the store is called Four Corners of the World and is located at 51st and North Ave. If any JUSTICE members are interested in volunteering time to work at the store, this will probably be a possibility in the near future.

Also, on Saturday, Nov. 11 there will be a conference titled "Music and Social Justice Ministers: Partners in the Reign of God." The event will be held at Holy Rosary Church (2011 N. Oakland) and will run from 9 AM-noon. The conference is a workshop about music and how it can relate to social justice and Catholic Social Teaching. University Ministry is willing to cover the cost of the conference.
