Austin Brown’s journey as a racial reconciler began in college with an experience called Sankofa–a three-day bus trip exploring Civil Rights sites throughout the South. Since then, she has earned a Masters in Social Justice and directed a short-term missions site on the west-side of Chicago, where she created interactive opportunities for young people to engage issues of poverty, injustice, and race. She also worked with two Willow Creek Community Church campuses, developing strategies and programming around multiculturalism. She currently serves as a Resident Director and Multicultural Liaison for Calvin College, and writes for Todays Christian Woman. Austin also writes on her personal blog at austinchanning.com.
