what we do
Our signature program. This is at the heart of what we do, starting Summer 2023. We hope to start our first Rooted Leadership cohort. Our focus is to provide development opportunities for people of color, minorities and underrepresented intersectionalities within our faith communities to grow within their own faith settings and congregations.
Our application criteria will be out Spring 2023, but trust us, you’re going to want to see it.
ROOTED IN SACRED ACTIVISM
We help mobilize people of faith to engage in topics relevant to our communities like immigration, displacement and gentrification, economic disparity, industrial prison complex, empty pews and more. Sacred activism will seek to engage our spiritual lens with the counterstories happening in our communities that don’t often get heard. In activism we will reclaim spaces, practice solidarity, grow in allyship and show our love in tangible ways to others.
A strong arm of our work comes through offering our services to private, public and non profit organizations throughout the United States and supporting their Diversity and Inclusion efforts.
We are able to facilitate dialogues, panels, conduct climate surveys and support in the establishment of organizational best practices for organizations.
ROOTED SUMMER CONFERENCE
This is an opportunity to hear from local and up and coming national leaders about justice and equity topics through the faith lens. Music, art, panels of scholars and activists getting together under one roof to learn from each other and organize.
ROOTED UNITY GATHERINGS
The gatherings are a place for activists, artists, pastors and community members to come together and learn from each other and deepen in intentional relationships. At Rooted we believe the best way to broaden our minds on difficult issues is to spend time in real relationship with people you may otherwise not come into contact with on a regular basis.
This is a space for audacious dialogue with some of the most exciting up and coming diverse leaders from our communities and the nation. We will expose and deconstruct pressings issues from our faith local communities. The events will take place quarterly and cover a host of topics.
