Sojourners: Matthew 25 Initiative

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’ Matthew 25 initiative works to reshape the public and political narrative in the United States by using values-based messaging and through convening diverse leaders to reduce racism and xenophobia. This work will help create positive political incentives for members of Congress and spaces for civil conversations.

Democracy Fund is proud to support Sojourners through a grant providing equipment and staff to create a series of films, audio pieces, and other resources aimed at addressing racism, white supremacy, and religious intolerance as part of an effort to guarantee a more inclusive America.
