The following documents were created in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the Baltimore Uprising. Our intention is to assist communities who are rising up and fighting back against anti-Black state and state-sanctioned violence to care for themselves, move through grief, heal from trauma, and attend to their emotional and physical safety in protest spaces.

A GUIDE FOR MOVEMENT CHAPLAINS: SPIRITUAL & EMOTIONAL CARE DURING COUNTER-ACTIONS TO WHITE SUPREMACIST HATE RALLIES
We're excited to announce the release of A Guide for Movement Chaplains: Spiritual and Emotional Care During Counteractions to White Supremacist Rallies. The background for the guide comes from our grassroots work this fall. In October, our Faith Engagement Fellow Margaret Ernst helped organize a group of Movement Chaplains to provide pastoral care during counteractions to the White Lives Matter rally in Shelbyville, TN. The chaplains worked side by side with local organizers to ensure that those who showed up to bravely resist the Neo-Nazis' message at counteractions and a community picnic, were cared for and safe.
After receiving feedback that their presence made a significant difference on the ground, Margaret and Rev. Lindsey Krinks have made available the training guide they used to prepare the chaplaincy team. The result is this guide, designed with love by our friend Heather Abbott.
This program has been a partner and supporter of Faith Matter’s work to create a Movement Chaplaincy program. In 2017, Faith Matters Network led a Movement Chaplaincy cohort as part of the Justice Ministry Education program.
