Mercy Students for Peace and Justice
Winner of SXU’s Organization of the Year Award (2012) and Program of the Year Award (2013), Mercy Students for Peace and Justice is a student organization that explores social justice issues with students, faculty and staff at Saint Xavier, drawing inspiration from the University’s Catholic and Mercy identity.
MSPJ is open to all SXU students. While some activities vary from year to year, others receive consistent attention through such annual events as the Hunger Banquet, Immigration Detention Center visits, Water Week activities, the Baby Bottle project and on-going terracycling. These and other MSPJ programs often reflect the social justice concerns of the Sisters of Mercy, SXU’s founders and sustainers, whose commitment to service and compassion is reflected in MSPJ’s name and activities.
Interested students can contact Staff Advisor Sister Joy Clough, RSM, who can put them in touch with current MSPJ officers, at email@example.com.
