Beau Underwood serves as senior director of advocacy for Sojourners. In this role he helps to create and implement the organization’s issue campaigns, manages online advocacy, and builds relationships with key partners and constituencies.
A graduate of Eureka College and the University of Chicago, Beau is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). While his graduate studies in religion and public policy make him a bad dinner companion, the work of Sojourners to engage these impolite topics has long inspired him.
Around more polite company, Beau is likely to be talking about his beloved Chicago White Sox, discussing the latest book he’s read, or offering the sort of bad pun you’d expect a pastor to make.
