Creighton Students Speak at National Ignatian Teach-In on Immigration

Creighton University Arts and Sciences junior Lauren Fukuda and senior Kara Stockdale have been chosen as opening speakers at the Ignatian Solidarity Network’s Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice focused on immigration, March 13-15 in Washington, D. C.

Fukuda will speak about her student experiences in lobbying and advocating for immigration reform. Stockdale will focus on her internship last summer working at an immigrant worker center in Wisconsin.

The Network ‘s purpose is to facilitate and enhance existing social justice and advocacy efforts in Jesuit-affiliated high schools, universities and colleges, parishes, organizations and individuals across the country. The teach-in is designed to discuss and reflect on various justice issues.

Two other Creighton students also will attend the annual event.
