Lisa Sharon Harper is one of the nation’s most influential voices on faith-rooted advocacy. She serves as the chief church engagement officer at Sojourners, a non-profit organization committed to putting Christian faith into action in the pursuit of social justice, peace, and environmental stewardship.
