Religion and Justice

Groundswell Inspiring faithful action to heal and repair the world. We offer tools and resources for organizing online, and we find and share the best faithful content on the Web daily. Powered by Auburn Seminary.

Groundswell is a growing online community of nearly 100,000 people who believe faith can be a force for good in the world. Faith leaders, organizers, and others motivated by faith and moral commitment come to Groundswell to be inspired to take faithful action, to be taught how to make change online, and to get tools that allow them to take online social action to heal and repair the world.

We are hungry for social change that's not just about a single issue or political party, but a shared moral vision for a better world. Groundswell echoes and amplifies that call for justice welling up among the secular, the seeking, and people of faith. We provide avenues for people of all faiths and walks of life to take strategic social action around shared moral imperatives.
