Charon Hribar is the Director of Cultural Strategies at the Kairos Center. She also serves as the co-coordinator of Theomusicology and Movement Arts for the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Over the past 15 years, Charon has been dedicated to the work of political education, leadership development, and integrating the use of arts and culture for movement building with community and religious leaders across the country. Believing that music is a powerful tool for social change, Charon is a vocalist who uses and teaches the art of protest music to embody the connections of culture, art, and history and promote collective action. Charon has a B.A. from Mercyhurst College (2002) and a M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary (2007). She received her Ph.D. in Religion and Society from Drew University where she also served as the coordinator of Drew University’s PREP (Partnership for Religion and Education in Prisons) Program at Northern State Prison in Newark, NJ. Charon is a trainer with Beyond the Choir, a collective working with social justice organizations to craft resonant messaging, plan strategic campaigns, and mobilize larger bases of support.

Originally from Aliquippa, PA (a small steel town 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh), her passion for justice and liberation grew from a family rooted in the values of Catholic Social Teaching and strong labor unions. As a liberation theologian and ethicist, Charon is interested in exploring the capacity of Christian social ethics to re-imagine a radical response to systemic racism, a growing disparity of wealth and poverty, militarism, and ecological devastation today.
