Kelvin Sauls was born and raised in townships south of Johannesburg, South Africa and became a leader in the anti-apartheid movement through his local Methodist Youth Fellowship. After a career in pastoral ministry he now serves as the Network Strategist at Community Health Councils in Los Angeles and is a Senior Fellow with the Atlantic Institute for Racial Equity where he is engaged in faith-rooted multi-racial and multi-faith community organizing through sacred resistance and moral re-imagination. Rev. Sauls hosts a monthly podcast, “Faith Without Borders,” is a Co-Founder of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and serves on the boards of multiple movement-building organizations working towards a more just, fairer and inclusive society. After a 2008 Holy Land pilgrimage, he joined the United Methodist effort to oppose the occupation of Palestine.
