Jennifer McLaughlin, Co-Founder

Jennifer co-founded the Justice and Faith Collective after 25 years of experience working in Church and Seminary settings. Her passion for introducing social justice and anti-racism learning to faith communities led her to incorporate anti-racism into Vacation Bible School (VBS), the biggest community gathering opportunity of the Church year. She describes her anti-racism VBS curriculum as a revolution of love, first piloted in 2017. The transformative results of these VBS experiences led her to found Community Allies VBS, inviting over 675 other communities into an antiracism VBS by 2020. Jennifer has an MDiv from Fuller Seminary and an MA in Social Justice and Community Organizing from Prescott College.  She also serves as Vice-Chair & Commissioner for the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission for her local city government.
