Travel and Lodging

We’ve secured a great rate at the Catamaran Resort and Hotel in San Diego, CA. The rate is $179.00 a night (singles and doubles). Call 800-422-8386 to make your reservation. Mention SJTI or the Social Justice Training Institute to receive this rate. You must call by January 10, 2016 to receive this rate.

You are encouraged to utilize our list serves or Facebook pages to look for roommates for the experience.

SJTI works to create a learning environment that supports the needs of all participants. As a tax-exempt organization we are not in the financial position to regularly provide some accommodations, including ASL interpreters. We typically partner with local college and universities to provide support for participants. Feel free to contact Vernon Wall if you would like to talk through accommodations and learning needs ( or 515-231-3067).

Airline Reservations
The San Diego International Airport is served by all major airlines and is a very easy airport to navigate. Ground transportation is available from the airport to the hotel via several shuttles.

Self-parking is $19.00 per night and valet parking is $24.00 per night

Hope to see you in February!
