Thia Reggio, Poverty Initiative Fellow and graduating M.Div., was recently published in the May/June 2012 issue of Unbound: An Interactive Journal of Christian Social Justice, in its “Inside Agitators: Seminarians for Justice” edition. Each article reflects on the social justice ministry and advocacy taking place on a seminary campus. Thia’s article, “Justice at Union Theological Seminary: Legacy of Justice, Lens for Action,” discusses the many ways that the Union community is working towards realizing justice, including the work of the Poverty Initiative in carrying forward the work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, Poor People’s Campaign.
Thia’s work with the Poverty Initiative has focused on development and communications. As a mother of three, Thia sees great promise in the coming generations and is committed to helping build a future without poverty and promote a present without prejudice for all children of the world.
