The #BlackLivesMatter Movement was founded in the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin and burst to public consciousness after the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. It is a broad based movement of mostly young people who feel disenfranchised by institutional systems, including the institutional church. However, many of the young people on the frontlines are people of faith. This workshop will explore the role of the faith community and how “church” is defined on the front lines of an activist movement.
