Mark Potter, Assistant to the Jesuit Provincial, California Jesuit Province

Mark Potter is the Provincial Assistant for Social Ministries in the California Province of the Society of Jesus – his job is to be a resource and catalyst for social justice efforts among the Jesuit high schools, universities, parishes, spirituality and retreat centers, and direct social service ministries in the states of California and Arizona. In this role, Mark has been instrumental to the creation of the Kino Border Initiative at the US/Mexico border in Ambos Nogales, and the Jesuit Restorative Justice Initiative that seeks to change both the culture and the laws that sentence juvenile offenders to death in prison. Mark also represents the California province in Jesuit shareholder advocacy efforts to promote commitments to fundamental human rights among some of the world’s most ethically-challenged corporations, such as Monsanto, Chevron, and Occidental Petroleum.
