- Who We Are
- What We Do
- Social Action
There are times when we are confronted with actions that should not be ignored by people of conscience, even if those actions may be politically popular and challenging them may be fraught with risk. In the deep south overt and public proselytizing of religion, in particular fundamentalist Christianity, is seen as required for political figures and a part of advancing a political agenda that frequently bears little relationship to principles such as feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, aiding the sick and infirm and otherwise caring for the least of us.
How should people of conscience respond when faced with actions repugnant to their beliefs and that undermine foundational principles to a just and inclusive society? The question is especially timely as we witness increasingly bold attacks on the institutions of our social order that have served to hold us together, but are now threatened.
