Fortification

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 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 at this time. We are using this frame to help us name the kinds of work that folks across the country are so thirsty for. We’re asking questions like: Why and how do people come into (and stay in) the work of social movements and justice work? Where do movement leaders and activists find spiritual homes? How can we support resilience and rigor within movement? This Fall we are thrilled to bring you Fortification: a podcast about the spiritual lives and spiritual sustenance of leaders in social justice movements. During one-on-one conversations between Caitlin Breedlove, Campaign Director of Standing on the Side of Love, and movement leaders and activists, we’ll be grappling with and answering these questions.
