What is the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative?

The Marianist Social Justice Collaborative (MSJC) began in 1998 as a means to promote education and action for social justice within the Marianist Family.

our story

Since our founding, we have continued to work for the following vision:

to educate the Marianist Family about social justice

to help Marianist Family members network around common social justice concerns

to serve as an advocate for a more just social order and a sustainable environment 

to provide community reflection and support for Marianists to do the work of justice in the world and in their lives

2020 Annual Appeal

MSJC's official annual appeal has just started and will continue until the end of the calendar year. A gift to the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative will allow us to provide more staff support to our issue teams, to continue to offer a wide variety of justice-centered programs and to advance our work in protecting the most vulnerable of our society. For additional details, read our full 2020 Annual Appeal Letter. Consider donating here today and thank you!

Marianist Sisters' Anti-Racism Statement

What's New

On this Feast of St. Martin de Porres, the first Black saint of the Americas and patron of race relations and public health workers, the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (FMI) shared their new Anti-Racism Statement.
May the prayers of St. Martin, apostle of charity and social justice who cared for the sick and the poor, join with our prayers as we strive for unity and healing in this time of elections and the pandemics of racism and COVID19.
Please check out their powerful statement using the link above!

MSJC focuses on seven specific social justice issues. These issues are tackled by issue teams that plan yearly goals, create resources for Marianists to use, organize legislative support and outreach, work in collaboration with other justice-oriented organizations, and much more!
