Movements for justice are expanding and shifting around us. We must take care of each other and ourselves in these times of resistance and backlash. In recent conversations mapping movement moments and how faith communities can be of use, organizer Elandria Williams used the language of political and spiritual ‘fortification’ as a key need of justice seekers, activists, and spiritually-rooted organizers.
Caitlin Breedlove, Auburn’s vice president of movement leadership and former Campaign Director of Standing on the Side of Love, uses this frame as she interviews organizers and activists talking about the role of faith in their own lives, reflections and lessons from movement, the current political moment and how faith communities can resource, support and engage with today's leading movements.
Season two of Fortifcation: Spiritual Sustenance for Movement Leadership, in partnership with Auburn Seminary launched in October 2017. Fortification can now be found on iTunes, GooglePlay and SoundCloud and Stitcher.
