Dr. Riggs is interested in the relationship between social oppression and socio-religious ethical praxis, ethical discourse that bridges the gap between womanist religious scholarship and the church`s practice of ministry, the moral foundations for public policy, and the church`s role in social justice ministry. 

Dr. Riggs is the Founder of an applied ethics non-profit center called Still Waters: A Center for Ethical Formation and Practices, Inc.  Still Waters' mission is to provide education in conflict transformation theory and practices, particularly focusing upon the intersection of religion and violence.  The Center's latest program is REM (Religious Ethical Mediation) PLAY, interactive dialogues for envisioning practical ways to engage during times of conflict.
