Center for Interfaith Cooperation

Hoosiers of Many Faiths in Community

Robin Thompson — Meet an AmeriCorps member

Robin Thompson (uses any pronouns)

Robin graduated from Purdue University in 2017 with BA’s in Religious Studies, Sociology, and Gender and Sexuality Studies. After graduation, she moved back home to Indianapolis to work in Unitarian Universalist congregations fulfilling multiple roles, including Office Manager, High School Youth Coordinator, and Communications Coordinator. Robin is now a non-residential Master of Divinity student at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, CA, the self-proclaimed “most progressive seminary on the continent.”

When asked why she joined the Interfaith Enrichment Corps, she said, “I believe that faith is the language of the soul. Through interfaith work, we can connect with our community at the deepest level in order to bring about social change. This is why I believe in the Center for Interfaith Cooperation and the Interfaith Enrichment Corps. I am focusing on the Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health. My faith and mental health are forever linked, almost one-in-the-same. My background is specifically in queer, trans, and feminist faith and spirituality. These roots keep me moving forward in profane and oppressive systems. I believe in radically inclusive, authentic, affirming, and vulnerable sacred spaces. I look forward to helping to create brave spaces for sharing about mental health and faith, which impact us every day.”
