For Collard Girls who we were always told that God was a man until She finally spoke to them.

For Collard Girls is a journey, a conversation, and podcast, that shares the unique, bold and beautiful narrative of womyn of color who are in spaces in the church, in the community, and in the world. We are writers. Activists. Entrepreneurs. Religious Leaders.

We want our narratives as womyn of color to enrich and challenge all “faiths seeking understanding” in world that is grappling with truth, justice, and femininity.

Join us on the journey and conversation about God, justice, and the world of #ForCollardGirls


✨Meet Our Team

Laura Kigweba James

Laura Kigweba James is a courageous advocate, theologian and wife. While working for the National Human Trafficking Resource Center she graduated from Wesley Theological Seminary with a MDiv. in Missional and Urban Churches. She is a compassionate womanist that defines justice as an intentional transformation that leads to wholeness. 

Friends would say her favorite treats are vegan cinnamon rolls. She enjoys reading books and listening to podcasts such as Black Girl In Om. Between traveling with her husband, listening to live music and cooking new food, Laura tries to make sense of life with Jamilia Wood’s Heavn Album as the soundtrack.

Tamika Jancewicz

Tamika Jancewicz is a spiritual empath and advocate for social justice and womyn empowerment. But nothing compares to her role as a mother. She is currently studying to obtain her MDiv at United Lutheran Seminary, while she spends her last year as Vicar of Christ Lutheran Church in DC. She is a womanist theologian, who believes in the sacredness of the stories we choose to share. And she especially believes in the beautiful transformative power of biblical storytelling.

When she’s not traveling all over the DMV for work or school, she loves spending time with her kids. Her choice of snack often depends on the mood, the color of the sky, and any other atmospheric influence.

To keep her sane in DC traffic, she listens to her favorite podcasts,  The Nod, The Sexually Liberated Woman, and My favorite Murder
