Howard University Divinity School and Sojourners, a Christian mobilizing and media organization, were already months into a new “ Theology and Racialized Policing Cohort Program ” when Floyd was killed. About 45 participants found themselves immediately putting into practice what they were learning.

“Several of our folks were speakers at protests and were articulating a theological voice in the midst of this time calling for accountability and transparency and justice,” said the Rev. Terrance McKinley, director of racial justice and mobilizing for Sojourners.
