The InterReligious Task Force, in conjunction with Case Western Reserve University, presents the 16th annual Social Justice Teach-In as a great opportunity for people of all ages to learn about critical human rights issues and practice hands-on skills to organize for change. This annual event attracts 500+ participants, many from area high schools and colleges. The Teach-In will provide participants with information, skills, and resources to support their own social justice programming at their schools and congregations.

IRTF has given dozens of presentations and workshops for community groups, congregations, high school and college classes, clubs, and organizations.
IRTF has organized 11 events for our community--from cozy “coffeehouses” to the Social Justice and Fair Trade Teach-Ins with hundreds of attendees.
Through these events and presentations, we have been fortunate to share our values with 3,199 people (just in the past year), 1,209 of whom engaged with IRTF for the first time!
