Her first book, Reforming Sodom: Protestants and the Rise of Gay Rights has been featured in Huffington Post, Religion and Politics, the L.A.

21] – The Petworth-16th St. Heights Neighborhood Assembly will take place at the Petworth Library, 4200 Kansas Ave. NW, WDC 20011, on Wed., Jan. 25 from 6 to 9 PM. The Petworth neighborhood assembly is a group of neighbors from Petworth and 16th Street Heights trying to bring their fellow neighbors together to build a stronger community and fight the challenges of the future together. From deportation defense, to worker rights to gentrification, they’re hoping to bring folks together to take a political stand through mutual aid and solidarity. This is meant as a first meeting where they will talk about what’s happening (since before and after the election), how people are feeling about the new administration, and where/how to direct that energy. If you have been working on these or other community issues before, or if this is your first time, come and join them! See https://www.facebook.com/events/335137610193780/.
