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 are excited to return with Fortification: a podcast about the spiritual lives and spiritual sustenance of leaders in social justice movements including one-on-one conversations between Caitlin Breedlove, Vice President, Movement Leadership at Auburn Seminary and movement leaders, organizers and activists. Fortification is a joint project of Auburn Seminary and Side with Love, a campaign of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
