Reflections from IJPC’s First S. Louise Akers Fellow, Naiomi Gonzalez

In honor of S. Louise Akers, SC, one of the founders of IJPC and its first director, we created a fellowship program to continue her legacy of peace and justice work in our region, the IJPC S. Louise Akers Fellowship through Mercy Volunteer Corps. In the fall of 2021, IJPC welcomed Naiomi Gonzalez as the inaugural S. Louise Akers Fellow and we checked in with her half way into her time to learn more about what drew her to the program, what she’s working on, and how she sees a connection to S. Louise Akers, SC. 

2021 Way of the Cross for Justice

Join us for a re-imagined Way of the Cross for Justice this year. Together with our partners, IJPC invites you to engage in a self-guided Good Friday pilgrimage connecting the suffering of Jesus with the suffering brought about by injustice in our day.

This Fall, IJPC’s Mission is on the Ballot

No matter your color on the political spectrum, everyone can agree that this November’s election is important. Each of IJPC’s core issues will be impacted by the election, from the presidential race to those at the bottom of the ballot.
