Although I sometimes attribute my interest in social justice to my having attended a Quaker college, my first foray into activism was attending a rally on behalf of Soviet Jews, known as refuseniks, who were being prevented from emigrating. I often feel called to take political action when the injustice feels personal. In recent years, I joined faith leaders in protesting the introduction of religious freedom bills in the state legislature, which would provide the state with a license to discriminate against LGBTQ+ Georgians. Every year I march in the Atlanta Pride Parade and raise funds to support SOJOURN. Last spring, I joined students and colleagues in the March for our Lives in Atlanta. Finally, this month I will be taking a trip with colleagues to Nogales, both to bear witness to the crisis at the border, as well as to offer humanitarian aid and support to families suffering separation and deportation.
