Sojourners Launches New Website and Digital Magazine Expanding Online Presence

Sojourners Celebrates 40 Years of Faith in Action for Social Justice

Washington, DC, – Today, Sojourners announced the launch of a new website and digital magazine, a move which will significantly expand their online presence. The new platforms further enrich the experiences of its readers, connecting them with compelling and award-winning content from a unique, progressive Christian perspective.

“As Sojourners celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and looks with excitement and great hope toward its next 40,” says Cathleen Falsani, Online Editor and Director of New Media, “it's wonderfully appropriate to be launching a new digital iteration of the magazine and a more dynamic design for the God's Politics blog.” The new website design transforms editorial content to include more up-to date news and commentary regularly featured on the website. Falsani added, “I'm thrilled by the opportunities to foster compelling civil dialogue about the pressing issues -- spiritual, political and cultural -- that matter most to people of faith who are interested in creating a more just, peaceable and grace-filled world.”

The new online platform integrates Sojourners web and magazine content with additional resources and calls to action for churches and small groups. Subscribers to the paper magazine will receive free digital subscriptions and readers will now have the option to receive a digital edition of Sojourners for $19.95 per year. Sojourners Digital engages audiences with links to magazine extras, blog posts, campaigns, fundraising opportunities, advertisers’ websites, author’s online book reviews, e-books, and videos.

"In celebrating 40 years of faith in action for social justice, we are excited about our two new digital products that will take our engagement and involvement to the next level," says Syieda Penn, Chief Marketing Officer. "We've come this far by faith, and it is our hope that the development of our digital platforms will continue to deepen our relationships within the community as the thought leader in timely faith-based news and information."

Sojo.net is an interactive Sojourners product that connects audiences with dynamic, rapid-response faith based news and information around faith, politics, and culture reporting. The editorial content is a balance of news and editorial features integrated with Jim Wallis’ steadfast voice for Biblically-based social justice.
