The work of Brave Commons varies from college to college.
At some, we curate spaces meant specifically to address spiritual trauma and center pastoral care for students. At others, students desire to make public statements via sit-ins, demonstrations, or community awareness campaigns to bring attention to abuses, toxic rhetoric, or abusive theology.
Across the board, Brave Commons is an intersectional grassroots movement that grounds itself in the fundamental truth that all are made in the beautiful, radiant, and wonderful Image of God.
We serve, therefore, as ambassadors of hope.
