Since the 1970s, Sojourners has been committed to resisting sexism in all its forms, while affirming the integrity and equality of women and men in the church and in the larger world. Through biblical education, creative advocacy, and bridge building, we champion policies at home and abroad that fortify women’s health and dignity through eliminating gender discrimination and abuse, increasing economic empowerment, and supporting women's leadership in the church and beyond.

Speak Out for Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence
Encourage your house of worship to speak out for survivors this Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Thirty-three percent of women will experience intimate partner violence in their lives, yet 95 percent of church-going women report they have never heard a specific message on abuse preached from the pulpit of their church. Read and sign on to this open letter to join the movement.

“It’s affirming that our time is now to take up space, and we must do it now while we have the chance to do it.”
