It's been over 4 months since we were together (what with Mardi Gras and sudden shutdown in March), and even though it will be a while yet before groups can visit in person, we're going to have a "virtual gathering"

We want to know how you and your family are doing! Our goal is to have everyone be able to share what is happening with you. We also have a quick ask:

**Express what you think is one leading social justice or other concern in the wake of the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak**

The Jesuit Social Research Institute at Loyola University (JSRI) just published a social indicators report comparing the 50 states on measures of racial, economic, and immigrant justice. Guess which state came in last? (Hint: you're living in that state now).
