At Jesuit universities like Loyola Chicago, students are taught that social justice is a cornerstone of Catholic education.
So when students saw that cafeteria workers were struggling for a living wage and affordable healthcare, they knew they had to act. They held a rally to show support for the workers, and took their demands to management.
But now university administrators are holding formal disciplinary proceedings against the students, calling their faithful protest "disorderly conduct." They could be placed on academic probation or even suspended from the school.
Administrators will decide the students fate on Thursday so we need to show them that Christians across the country are standing with students who are living out the best values of our faith.
