Theoretical solidarity, solidarity from a distance, is not solidarity at all.
— Larycia Hawkins

TEDx Talk, April 30, 2016, Wilmington, DE

Embodied solidarity is a movement spurred in December 2015 by Larycia Hawkins' (a Christian) decision to wear a headscarf, or Muslim hijab in solidarity with her persecuted Muslim sisters during the Christian season of Advent.

Her decision and her subsequent departure from Wheaton College sparked a national & international conversation about religion, race, and the nature of solidarity.
