Abstract/Description

This presentation focuses on tangible ways to connect our Marianist charism, students' values and identities, and civic engagement. Through the example of the modular retreat "Vox: Using Your Voice and Your Vote Faithfully," we will explore how students make the connection from discernment to action for participation in civic society. We, along with Samantha Kennedy, created Vox during the 2020 election as a virtual engagement opportunity and adapted it for the 2022 midterm elections as a PATH-eligible online retreat. Session participants will have an opportunity to think creatively about how to communicate broad and abstract ideas to students in tangible ways that reduce anxiety and instill hope for action in the future.
