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.

About the Speaker:
Teresa Samayoa is from a well to do family but at age 17 an encounter with a marginal area in her neighborhood opened her eyes and heart to the reality of her country. She began to volunteer with a Catholic Church in her home town in the area worst hit by the civil war. She served for 11 years in the social pastoral ministry in her diocese, accompanying the work and struggles of local community leaders.
