The Activist Theology Project is a collaborative team passionate about our commitment to the ethics and politics of en conjunto (togetherness). We are politicized theologians and healers, social change agents, and strategy-minded people situated in the hybrid space of church, social change, and the academy. We are a multiplicity of humans who have engaged one another to bridge radical differences.
This commitment to bridge compels the team to curate the three pillars of the Activist Theology Project, which are convening people curating a liberative relationality, creative engagement helping connect the dots motivating thought into action, and companioning that serves as the deep intentional practice of being with one another on this journey helping to build a movement committed to collective liberation and a more loving world.
These three pillars create an undergirding on which other needs within this work might succeed. The Activist Theology Project recognizes that our collective need to speak change into the world often comes when persons of like and divergent minds think through possibility alongside one another. The work requires humility and patience. The work requires moral courage where disparate views find sanctuary. The work requires deep listening yoked with thoughtful conversation. The work asks us to practice living in ways that support transformational justice for self, other, community, and planet. You are encouraged to refer to us as an “organization that seeks liberation using embodied practice, restorative conversation, creative advocacy, and intentional partnership.”
With the growing economic devastation and the acceleration of capitalism, we live in the toxicity and lack of care for our world that produces an extreme environment of crisis. Because of this and so much more, the world palpitates for hope & possibilities. In order to make a productive intervention in today’s world, we must take seriously the role of supremacy culture that threatens the flourishing of us all. The Activist Theology Project exists to shift culture and mindset in such a way that we can all hear, feel and experience the world and midwife hope and possibility for a more loving world of radical difference.
