Sojourners

Sojourners calls on people of faith to speak out against injustice and for the common good. They envision and work toward a world where people reject fear and counter efforts to divide us with love and strategic action. Their mission is to articulate the biblical call to social justice, inspiring hope and building a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world.

Why We Invested

Sojourners promotes pluralism and a more inclusive America through their work with people of faith across the United States. One of the leading Christian organizations in the United States, their work promotes pluralism as a central value to both our democracy and to their religion. They work across denominations to push back against racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and other prejudices in society. Through their Faith Over Fear trainings, their magazine articles, the Matthew 25 Initiative, Church network, and other programs, Sojourners trains and engages Christian leaders across the country on how to overcome division and promote inclusion and pluralism. Through their “Turnout Sunday” and “Lawyers and Collars” programs, Sojourners also works to mobilize faith leaders to protect voting rights at the polls, as well as to educate voters before Election Day.

Democracy Fund is proud to provide support to the important work of Sojourners.
