What called you to ACT?
I came to Sacramento ACT to reconcile my relationship with the church. I have a deep love for the church, but as a young adult I also had a strong critique and felt distanced from the church. I wanted step into the space of service to church.
I came to ACT out of a deep desire to help more of our members get out of the pews and answer their call to transform our communities. I wanted to challenge myself to be the best person I can be and to model Jesus’s example of liberation and advocating for the least in our community. I want to radicalize people of faith to the moment in front of us, the opportunity we have to shine our light and stand by the voiceless to be a vessel for healing, reconciliation and justice in Sacramento.
