Liz Bierly (she/her) is excited to spend the next year as one of the editorial assistants at Sojourners and is most looking forward to fact-checking and uploading content for the magazine.
An Ithaca College alum, Liz studied journalism, counseling, and politics while copy editing her school paper and writing opinion pieces for her hometown newspaper. She was also deeply involved in a nondenominational ministry group on campus where she was passionate about fostering intentional and inclusive community. She discovered Sojourners after extensively Googling “jobs with ministry, advocacy, and communications” and is thrilled to be working at an organization that allows her to connect these core interests while pursuing justice.
Liz was born and raised in Lancaster, Penn., where she developed a deep appreciation for rolling hills, farm fields, and the outdoors. She most recently fell in love with the Green Mountains while thru hiking the Long Trail in Vermont and looks forward to tackling more outdoor adventures in the future. Outside of the office, you can find her jamming to Spotify, color-coding her planner, running, rock climbing, and reading anything she can get her hands on.
