Exploring Faith-based Social Justice & Service

Sojourners: Faith, Politics, Culture 

Sojourner’s 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.

Call to Action 

Call to Action is a Catholic movement working for equality and justice in the Church and society. An independent national organization of over 25,000 people and 53 local chapters, Call to Action believes that the Spirit of God is at work in the whole Church, not just in its appointed leaders.

Living Water International 

Living Water International exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience “living water”—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.

Bread for the World 

Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. By changing policies, programs, and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities where we live.

Interfaith Worker Justice 

Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ) is a network of people of faith that calls upon our religious values in order to educate, organize, and mobilize the religious community in the United States on issues and campaigns that will improve wages, benefits, and conditions for workers, and give voice to workers, especially workers in low-wage jobs.

Catholic Charities 

Believing in the presence of God in our midst, we proclaim the sanctity of human life and the dignity of the person by sharing in the mission of Jesus given to the Church. To this end, Catholic Charities works with individuals, families and communities to help them meet their needs, address their issues, eliminate oppression, and build a just and compassionate society.

Interchurch Medical Assistance 

IMA World Health is a nonprofit organization providing health care services and supplies to vulnerable and marginalized people. We are a faith-based organization (FBO) working primarily in the developing world, where an estimated 30 to 60 percent of health care is provided by FBOs.

Church World Service 

In the United States, we’re helping communities respond to disasters, resettling refugees, promoting fair national and international policies, providing educational resources, and inviting you and others to join a people-to-people network of local and global caring through participation in CROP Hunger Walks, the Blankets+ program, and the CWS Kits program.

Week of Compassion 

Week of Compassion is the relief, refugee and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. We seek to equip and empower disciples to alleviate the suffering of others through disaster response, humanitarian aid, sustainable development and the promotion of mission opportunities.
