Religious Leader of the Week At Auburn Lives of Commitment 2011, Honoree Chely Wright touched all of us with her powerful story of country music success yet leading a double life as an LGBT woman who feared sharing her story publicly. In this clip, Chely tells how it was her Christian faith that gave her the trust to be open. Chely is now an active LGBT activist.

Groundswell Groundswell is a new multi-faith initiative that will help channel the aspirations of the emerging generation and inspire strategic action for justice. We believe that most Americans -- people of faith, as well as atheists, agnostics and the seeking -- are hungry to tap into a calling at the core of their being. Groundswell will offer one way for us to transcend bitter polarization, identify common ground, roll up our sleeves and work together to repair the world.
