Media Advisories & Press Releases

9.17.21 - Right-Wing rallies at the nation’s Capital this weekend, lawsuits over life-saving mask efforts, and voting rights suppression efforts continue to dominate the daily headlines. Where do these deep divisions come from and what do we do about it? In his newly released book,A More Perfect Union: A New Vision for Building the Beloved Community, Sojourners President Adam Taylor tackles the deep roots of the toxic polarization that paralyzes our politics, communities, and even our churches.

9.14.21 - In his new book, released today by Broadleaf Books, Sojourners President Rev. Adam Russell Taylor shows a way out of the fear and hatred that divides our country by replacing toxic polarization with redemptive patriotism and casting a unifying moral vision that draws up on our civic and spiritual values and completes the unfinished business of the civil rights movement.

8.11.21 - The right to vote is the bedrock of our democracy. Senate Republicans’ shameless refusal to even debate, much less act on the critical voting rights protections contained in the For the People Act is a clear sign that our democracy is under assault. This is also an assault on our dignity, our humanity, and our faith.

Georgetown and the University’s McCourt School of Public Policy today announced that Jim Wallis, founder of the Christian social justice organization Sojourners, will join the McCourt School as the inaugural Chair in Faith and Justice.

5.27.21 - Sojourners is proud to welcome Adwoa Rey as Chief Advancement Officer. In her role she will direct and oversee Sojourners Advancement department, and lead the growth and implementation of Sojourners fundraising efforts, including the public phase of its first-ever capital campaign, coinciding with its 50th anniversary.

The seventies were the high-water mark of progressive evangelicalism, a social activist brand of conservative Protestantism (represented by figures like Jim Wallis and Sojourners magazine) that was widely popular, especially among younger evangelical Christians who opposed to the Vietnam War, embraced feminism and civil rights and sought to address economic injustice.
