Christina Colón is Assistant Web Editor at Sojourners. She joined the web staff after serving as an editorial assistant of Sojourners magazine from 2017-2018. She holds a B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology from Centre College and a Certificate in Editing from the Poynter Institute for Media Studies.
It was Roald Dahl’s Matilda, given to her at the youthful age of 6, that fueled Christina’s passion for justice and storytelling. Since then, she has designed educational study guides for the American Shakespeare Center, authored a book with the children of The Cabbage Patch Settlement House, and served as an ambassador of the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty. In her current role, she works to weave quantitative and qualitative data into meaningful stories (and tweets).
A Florida native, Christina enjoys sunshine and iced tea. When not at her computer, Christina can be found listening to a podcast, reading in a local park, or making scrambled eggs. You can follow Christina on Twitter @CJaneColon.
