Following a Spirit-Led Call for Activism

“For a while,” Tenaja Henson says, “my activism looked like showing up and holding space—and I think that is just as powerful as when Spirit-led activism has looked like me showing up at protests and yelling at folks or getting rowdy.” For Tenaja, it’s all about “letting the Spirit guide the process into what a non-violence direct action could look like.”

“Being loud and disruptive has a really weird relationship to the peaceful pacifist stereotype of Quakerism,” Ten acknowledges, but “I incorporate my faith into my work as letting it lead me into what is the next uprooting… Like, what is the next root of something that needs to be pulled up?”
