Our commitment to advancing human rights and fighting global poverty is rooted in our understanding of and commitment to imago dei, that everyone is made in the very likeness and image of God. Sojourners has long championed human rights and supported the fight against extreme poverty around the world — from our efforts to reverse repressive U.S. policy toward Central America to our leadership in the anti-apartheid struggle, Jubilee debt cancellation movement, and efforts to advance the Millennium Development Goals. Building on these and other campaigns, we are committed to revitalizing and strengthening U.S. support for global human rights and will work to build the social and political will necessary to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
