Virginia Schilder
Virginia is a first-year Master of Divinity student at Harvard Divinity School, focusing on Christianity with public service/social justice work as her ministry. Specifically, she is interested in the intersection of faith and socioeconomic and ecological justice, as well as eco-theology and queer theology. Virginia graduated from Brown University in 2020 with a BA in Religious Studies and Public Policy, and wrote her senior thesis on women challenging clericalism in the Roman Catholic Church. While at Brown, Virginia served on the Multifaith Council, coordinated the Brown Religious Literacy Project, and was active in political advocacy. She is excited to join the Pluralism Project to contribute her background in interfaith work and further explore the critical role of interreligious engagement in justice efforts.
