In Texas and elsewhere in the South, organizers must reckon with the historical relationship between religion and white supremacy. Facing this legacy, how can we re-imagine the Bible Belt and engage with faith communities in emancipatory ways? Using local case studies, Dr. Lydia Bean and Minister Danielle Ayers identify common challenges and opportunities for new faith-rooted organizations in Texas and the South. This workshop includes a group exercise where participants will divide into issue-based clusters to apply this analysis and to clarify their vision for faith as potentially emancipatory force in their context.
