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.
