UN-Buckling the Bible Belt: Best Practices for RJ & Faith Organizing among Southern Christian Churches

Developed over 10 years organizing with Black Church leaders, SisterReach has a unique relational strategy organizing people of faith. Learn how we organize and equip clergy to support bodily autonomy and self-determination by moving away from the simple request to “collar up and show up” and towards a paradigm of symbiosis. We must overcome barriers that have historically made partnerships with some churches difficult if not impossible. This workshop will help clarify the need for organizing Christian Churches in the South, help you as an advocate and organizer assess your preparedness for organizing in communities of faith, and offer an introduction to our research and process.
