Jesuit Migration Service-Central and North America
Jesuit Migration Service-Central and North America (Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes Centroamérica y Norteamérica, SJM) is a network of Jesuit and Jesuit-affiliated organizations throughout North and South America that aim to cooperate on areas of academic research, advocacy, and social/pastoral care of migrants. SJM has a presence in nine countries, which includes universities, social projects, pastoral centers, human rights advocacy groups, and specialized research centers. It aims to build and strengthen regional linkages between institutions of the Society of Jesus to achieve a significant impact on improving living conditions of migrants and their families. The Jesuit Service for Migrants in Mexico started SJM in 2002 in Miguel Hidalgo, Mexico.
