Serving Faith Communities

Book faith leaders from Abolitionist Sanctuary to preach, teach bible studies, host Abolitionist Sanctuary services, consult church leaders, lead trainings, and mobilize congregations toward civic engagement by applying liberative theologies to public policies and transformative justice strategies.

Religious leaders and laity can enroll in our Abolition Academy to take courses for academic credit, certification, or pass/fail electives.

We primarily train and collaborate with Black-serving churches, but also serve multifaith and ecumenical religious communities.

All fees benefit Abolitionist Sanctuary, a nonprofit public charity.
