Description

Sandhya Rani Jha serves as Director at the Oakland Peace Center, a collective of innovative non-profits working to create justice and peace in the city of Oakland and the Bay Area. The OPC is also a physical space, and the legacy project of First Christian Church of Oakland, where Sandhya pastored for seven years. Ordained at National City Christian Church in Washington, DC, Sandhya's passion is liberation ethics as an academic field and as a lived experience in urban communities. She published Room at the Table: Struggle for Unity and Equality in Disciples History, a book about people of color in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and co-wrote (with Ben Bohren and Paula Bishop Pochieca) And Still We Rise, a congregational study of transformation. Sandhya is an anti-racism/anti-oppression trainer with the Disciples of Christ, a public speaker and preacher, and a consultant for Hope Partnership's New Beginnings program. Sandhya also serves as Director of Interfaith Programs at East Bay Housing Organizations, a membership organization that works to preserve, protect and expand affordable housing opportunities through education, advocacy and coalition-building in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The daughter of a mother from Scotland and a father from India, Sandhya has been shaped by both cultures and their values. She received Master of Divinity and Master of Public Policy from the University of Chicago in 2005, where her joint thesis was on the subject of environmental racism as a case study on the intersection of public policy and theological ethics. It probably goes without saying that she gets far more excited about urban policy than a normal person should.
