Erin Green is one of three Co-Executive Directors for Brave Commons, a movement supporting intersectional queer justice on Christian university campuses. She holds a BA from Azusa Pacific University in Biblical Studies and is currently in grad school at San Francisco Theological Seminary working on her MDiv degree. In this episode, we talk about the unique struggle that queer students face at Christian colleges and the work Brave Commons is doing to support them.
Erin is a LGBTQ+ faith advocate and activist most recognized for her work as the former Executive Director of Biolans’ Equal Ground (BQU) at Biola University where she successfully led demonstrations in support of Biola’s Queer community. In addition to on-campus work, Erin has worked for several non-profits as a grassroots community organizer and faith consultant and has featured works on Huffington Post. Her passion for and knowledge of the biblical text help her navigate through discussions with Christian institutions, faith leaders, and faith communities. She works to help reform these communities to empower the marginalized and oppressed in the name of Christ.
