GROUNDSWELL: Inspiring faithful action to heal and repair the world. We offer tools and resources for organizing online, and we find and share the best faithful content on the Web daily. Powered by Auburn Seminary.
Groundswell is a growing online community of nearly 100,000 people who believe faith can be a force for good in the world. Faith leaders, organizers, and others motivated by faith and moral commitment come to Groundswell to be inspired to take faithful action, to be taught how to make change online, and to get tools that allow them to take online social action to heal and repair the world.
We are hungry for social change that's not just about a single issue or political party, but a shared moral vision for a better world. Groundswell echoes and amplifies that call for justice welling up among the secular, the seeking, and people of faith. We provide avenues for people of all faiths and walks of life to take strategic social action around shared moral imperatives.
We provide a digital platform for the multifaith movement for justice to take strategic social action to stand for racial and religious dignity, end human trafficking, embrace full LGBTQ dignity and equality, call for a moral economy, get money out of politics, prevent religious extremists from hijacking our faiths, and much more. Together, we echo and amplify a call for justice welling up among people of faith, the secular, and the seeking.
Campaigns on our site will be big and small, heroic and ordinary. If you have an idea to make your community, your school, your local playground, faith community, religion, or the planet a better place, this platform puts the technology tools to assist you at your fingertips.
We also provide training to help faith leaders and organizers get better at harnessing the power of the Internet to make social change.
However you are called to heal the world – ending gun violence or child poverty, fighting for immigration reform or our social safety net – we can help.
Our trainings offer insights into and best practices for mapping out effective campaigns that make change while building lists and power, creating ethical “spectacles,” effective digital storytelling, writing email blasts that engage, and leveraging social media to accomplish campaign goals.
