Friday Fusion: We Need a Groundswell ASAP!!!
When Valarie Kaur, interfaith leader, said at the Moral Revival that we find ourselves "not in a time of the tomb, but in a time of the womb" I knew that I needed to know more about her work. Kaur founded Groundswell, an organization committed to faith-rooted organizing and social justice. For this Friday Fusion we lift up Groundswell and their incredible work.
In their own words:
MULTIFAITH SOCIAL ACTION TO HEAL AND REPAIR THE WORLD
Groundswell is an online community of people who believe faith can be a force for good in the world.
Start a campaign -
Campaigns on our site will be big and small, heroic and ordinary. If you have an idea to make your community, your school, your local playground, church, synagogue, religion, or your planet a better place, the tools are at your fingertips.
It's easy – and fast. Did we mention it's easy?
Starting a petition or campaign on Groundswell is super simple. And we'll guide you every step of the way. If you'd like to talk to one of us before you get started, don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's what we do-
We provide a petition site for the multifaith movement for justice to take strategic social action to heal and repair the world – to stand for racial and religious dignity, to combat human trafficking, embrace full LGBTQ dignity and equality, call for a moral economy, get money out of politics, prevent religious extremists from hijacking our faiths, and much more.
