Hello, my name is Natasha. I’m a crew member at the Equality Ride House because some of the people I love the most are current students at Christian colleges. When I went to Biola University, I struggled deeply with coming to terms with my faith and sexuality. My experience as a lesbian on campus taught me that at many Christian colleges, Christianity is weaponized against LGBTQ individuals, people of color, and members of other marginalized communities. Despite this, I believe students can reclaim their faith and make their campuses more safe and just for everyone.
*When you support Natasha, 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.
