This program commemorates the 20th anniversary of the murder of six Jesuits by soldiers in El Salvador. In the aftermath of that event, the Ignacio Martín-Baró Fund was created in memory of one of the Jesuits to make grants to educate and improve social conditions in communities affected by the “consequences of violence and injustice.” A film about the work of the Fund is screened, followed by three speakers: J. Donald Monan, S.J., chancellor of Boston College; Rodolfo Cardenal, S.J., a research professor and former rector of the University of Central America; and Elizabeth Lira, an author, psychologist, and human rights advocate.
