Justice in January 

When and where is Justice in January?

Justice in January will be at two sites for the academic year of 2014-2015: San Diego, CA and Tucson, AZ.

The dates for the trip are: January 5th-11th.

When do I register?

The link to register will go live at 7:30am on October 3rd 2014.

How much does Justice in January cost?

$525 to be fundraised per person

$525 personal fundraising goal (this includes your return flight to Spokane, not the flight TO your site)

Financial Deadlines:

  • Installment of $225 due November 7th
  • Installment of $300 due December 1st
  • Remaining Balance due December 8th

(If a student does not meet the necessary fundraising goal by each deadline they will be required to pay a $25 fee that will go to the program but not towards their goal.)

What does the price of the trip include?

It includes:

  • A Retreat
  • T-shirt
  • Food
  • Lodging
  • Van Rental
  • Return flight only to Spokane
What do we do at each site?

The focus of the San Diego and Tucson sites is immigration.  During the immersion trip we will learn more about ourselves, our JIJ group and the community in which we serve. In the border cities of San Diego and Tucson we hope to get a holistic view of the immigration issue.  

We plan to work with children and education in San Diego, as well as with migrant families and adults in Tucson.  More particularly, we hope to include a border tour, trial hearing, and learn from the stories of newly arrived immigrants.

How is JIJ different than Mission: Possible?
  • JIJ is over Winter Break, January 5-11 and is a day shorter than the Spring break trips
  • the cost of JIJ includes a retreat
  • JIJ is based on the Social Change Model: focusing on gaining a better understanding of self, our JIJ group and the community we will serve
  • JIJ is focused on the issue of Immigration. You will get the opportunity to better understand the issues about immigration before you head to your site.
Can we do more than one Immersion Trip?

Yes you can. Since Justice in January is at the end of Christmas break and Mission Possible are in the Spring it is possible to do more than one trip.  You will still need to fundraise for each trip, and pay the $150 registration per trip.

What is the timeline of JIJ?
  • Early-October: Welcome meeting
  • Mid-October: Fundraising kickoff
  • Mid-November: Retreat
  • End of Nov-December: Meet with leaders and group members
  • End of Winter Break: January 5-11, Justice in January!
