Join the Jesuit Advocacy Network

The Jesuit Advocacy Network (JAN) advocates for legislative and public policies that prioritize the needs of the poor and advance the common good of all. As advocates, members of the JAN bring a voice rooted in faith to the shaping of legislation and public policy in Washington, D.C., and in state and local areas.

Currently, more than 5,000 Jesuit, religious and lay members participate in this network. They include former and current members of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and persons associated with the 99 parishes, seven Nativity schools, 45 high schools and 28 colleges and universities that the Society of Jesus runs. These works and ministries associated with the vision of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the Society of Jesus contain many people with tremendous practical and theoretical expertise.

We firmly believe that this network, as it is developed and mobilized, possesses great potential to exert a positive, faith-based influence on the shaping of a more just public policy.

Joining JAN means:
  • Receiving alerts about pending legislation and occasional printed material about social issues
  • Being willing to write, call, visit or use your local media to influence issues
It does not mean:
  • Getting solicited for funds or contributions
  • Giving your name to other groups or commercial mail lists

The Jesuit Advocacy Network respects the desire for preserving privacy and will not sell or loan information about its members to any outside group.

Joining JAN will enable us to contact you and keep you informed so you can be an active advocate.
