For me the most powerful possibility that energizes me about the Equality Ride House is the hope that there may be one less person out there in the world who believes they don't belong. It doesn't seem too long ago that I was an eager freshman on a Christian campus with little imagination of how to navigate my identity as an queer woman of color. Working with Soulforce helps broaden the way in which I understand my experience as well as how an intersectional framework is mandatory when it comes to dismantling the systems which constantly pits oppressed communities against each other. In the next few months we're here, I hope to open doors for activism which centers others who exist at these intersections and weave together enough work for this to be carried on by youth leaders and community partners.
*When you support Jordyn, you are providing housing, training, food, transportation, printing, and staff support to a group of powerful activists creating a home for people in Southern California who live, breathe, work, and study in hostile fundamentalist contexts. Thanks for making Soulforce come alive in new ways through the Equality Ride program.
