Vernon Walker ’16

“I am an ordinated minister though a non-denominational church and have worked in many different roles fighting for social justice. In my prior experience, I have worked with ex-prisoners fighting for fair job hiring treatment after being released from prison; I worked among the homeless population to feed the hungry and I have organized low-income residents that rent apartments to fight against substandard living conditions. I decided to join the religion and conflict transformation program because I am interested in how religion can shape and help conflict resolution. It is widely known that religion can cause conflict and has done so but religion can also heal conflict which I am interested in. It is my hope though the program that I can learn the theology, theory and practice of faith-based conflict transformation and apply it to the real world.” -Vernon Walker ’16
