About Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III
Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III serves as Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. For two decades, he has preached a Black theology that unapologetically calls attention to the problems of mass incarceration, environmental justice, and economic inequality. Dr. Moss led the team that came up with the “My Life Matters” curriculum, including the viral video “Get Home Safely: 10 Rules of Survival,” created in the aftermath of Michael Brown’s death at the hands of police. Dr. Moss was named to the inaugural Root 100, as an African-American leader who is making extraordinary contributions.
