Social Justice Clubs
Our social justice clubs encourage students to promote faith that does justice. They allow our students to connect, build community, and explore concepts of social justice and equity as well as engage in experiences that challenge their perception. We also collaborate with other clubs on campus to provide support.
Peace and Justice Coalition
The Peace and Justice Coalition (PJC) is comprised of student leaders who engage the University of San Francisco community to learn about and act on domestic and global injustices. PJC ambassadors build solidarity through concept and contact. In so doing, they engage with the diverse and complex realities of this world in order to learn it, critically analyze it, and creatively respond to its injustices in a constructive manner. As ambassadors of University Ministry, they strive to be people who choose to be with and for others, especially those on the margins of society.
PJC Ambassadors promote social, environmental, and economic justice and the respect for the dignity of the human person; engage in the advancement of Catholic Social Teachings; develop skills and tools to advocate against global and domestic injustices; commit to holistic development that promotes “faith that does Justice;” participate in the Ignatian Family Teach-In through the Ignatian Solidarity Network; and engage in social justice initiatives such as but not limited to Solidarity in Action, Social Justice series, Peace and Justice Coalition meetings, and beyond.
The Peace and Justice Coalition members will be recognized as a group of student leaders, within USF’s various clubs and organizations, that strive to promote social justice through supportive collaboration.

Food Recovery Network
The Food Recovery Network is a student-led non-profit organization that fights food waste and hunger within the community by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste and donating it to people in need. Last semester our school's chapter recovered and donated 1,537 pounds of food! For more information, please email Mauricio Diaz de Leon.
Corpus Clinic works with UCSF to assist in coordinating and holding free health clinics in the St. Vincent De Paul homeless shelter. Every week, pre-med students help facilitate two general clinics, one dermatology clinic, and one women's health group meeting. Students are trained to take patients' vitals and to refer shelter residents to primary care physicians who can provide long-term care. Corpus Clinic is dedicated to bridging gaps in health care for people experiencing homelessness in the San Francisco community. For more information, please email Mauricio Diaz de Leon.
