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


Announcement: Changemakers has been scheduled for April 4th, 2020 at La Salle University in Philadelphia! We would love to see you there. Read more about our Changemakers conference here.

Death Penalty and Restorative Justice Resource and Discussion Guide 

The DP/RJ issue team has just published a discussion guide with the help of the North American Center for Marianist Studies (NACMS). The guide is designed to be used during a faith community meeting and is a great introduction to death penalty abolition and restorative justice practices! Find the guide for use here

What's New

MSJC focuses on six 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!
