Sabrina Dent (she/her/hers) is the Senior Faith Adviser at Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
Sabrina is a life-long advocate for human rights and social justice. Throughout her career, she has worked with vulnerable populations including women and children impacted by domestic violence and abuse, youth with mental health and behavioral challenges, and racial and religious minorities. However, she developed a passion as a religious freedom advocate in 2015 when she became a BJC Fellow with the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty (BJC).
Before joining the AU team, Sabrina worked as director of programs and partnerships at the Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum where she managed several of the education initiatives designed for religious and civic leaders. She enhanced the Center’s Summer Bootcamp for Interns, providing an opportunity for college interns to learn more about religious freedom and engage national experts on this topic. Additionally, she led a three-year project funded by the Henry Luce Foundation titled “Religious Freedom: African American Perspectives” in partnership with Historically Black Theological Institutions. Sabrina is the co-editor and a contributing author for the recently published book African Americans and Religious Freedom: New Perspectives for Congregations and Communities.
