Meet Our Local Organizers
Unbound Local Organizers are volunteers working on the ground and in their local area/congregation/organization to:
- promote Unbound and encourage participation,
- seek out new contributors to the journal,
- act as liaisons to their communities,
- report to Unbound the justice needs and issues most pressing in their locations, and
- carry out the community organizing mission of Unbound, translating the journal’s discussion and analysis into practical and strategic action for their communities, fueling a grassroots movement already underway as they collaborate with ongoing efforts and seek to mobilize the people for justice.
Local Organizers are the hands, ears, and eyes of the Unbound community. Through trust-based relationships in their respective communities, they discern what people on the ground care about. What are folks struggling with? What are their concerns? What are they anxious about? Angry? Joyous? By carrying these voices to Unbound, Local Organizers are key players in determining the trajectory and themes of the journal and online community. Then, using the resources, analysis, and strategic thinking of Unbound, Local Organizers go back to their communities and translate issues/concerns into action—all with the support of a national Unbound community, including its varied skills, knowledge, relationships, and creative ideas.
