Dr. Flores’ public engagement takes the shape of social justice advocacy, especially in her current hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia and her original hometown of Denver, Colorado. Engaging her work in academic theology and religious studies in a pluralistic public context, she advocates for institutions that advance dignity, equality, and justice as well as cultures supportive of these democratic goals.
In 2015, Dr. Flores was awarded the Building Bridges Circles of Change Award for cultivating positive social change.
