Groundswell is proud to join a growing national movement of those who are standing up for compassion and courageous action. We encourage you to check out some of our partners:
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
CAIR’s vision is to be a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding. CAIR’s mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions (CPWR)
The Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world’s religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.
Interfaith Center of New York
The Interfaith Center of New York seeks to make New York City and the world safe for religious difference by increasing respect and mutual understanding among people of different faith, ethnic, and cultural traditions and by fostering cooperation among religious communities and civic organizations to solve common social problems.
Intersections is dedicated to building respectful relationships among diverse individuals and communities to forge common ground and develop strategies that promote justice, reconciliation, and peace. We are a multi-cultural, multi-faith, global initiative of the Collegiate Church of New York, the oldest corporation in North America dating back to 1628.
Not in Our Town (NIOT)
Not In Our Town highlights communities working together to stop hate. Their videos and broadcasts highlight and celebrate people who have developed creative anti-bias programs and responses. These stories have motivated many others to develop their own innovative initiatives which overpower the hateful actions and voices in their communities.
Our stories explore a wide range of issues including peace, tolerance, social justice and the environment. Odyssey is the nation's largest multi-faith media coalition with over 100 members, including faith groups, organizations and individuals
Prepare New York
Prepare New York is a coalition of New York based interfaith organizations who are committed to preparing New York City (and the nation) for the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 by promoting civil dialogue, education about religious pluralism, support for the Muslim community, and coordinating events on the day of the anniversary.
Religious Freedom USA (RFUSA)
On September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda terrorists took the lives of 3,000 innocent Americans. We cannot allow them to take the soul of America, too. Religious freedom is an American value that must be protected. Religious Freedom USA is a movement to stand with the Park51 community center as part of the tolerant vision of our Founding Fathers.
Rights Working Group
In the aftermath of 9/11, the Rights Working Group (RWG) strives to restore the American commitment to protect civil liberties and human rights for all people in the U.S. RWG has grown a strong coalition of civil liberties, human rights and civil rights, national security, and immigrant rights organizations to work hand in hand to restore due process.
South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT)
SAALT is a national, nonpartisan, non-profit organization that elevates the voices and perspectives of South Asian individuals and organizations to build a more just and inclusive society in the United States.
Every day, Tanenbaum creates the tools that turn this vision into a reality. Tanenbaum confronts religious ignorance and violence head-on with results-oriented programs that reduce hatred and produce real change in the way people think and act.
Dialogue Through Action: World Faith’s mission is to counter religious extremism and strife by demonstrating how faith can inform work for unity and peace, rather than hate, war, and division.
This is our moment. The Federal Budget and our policy priorities are moral decisions that shape our world – and as people of faith, we can build the moral movement for a better one. Please join me in signing a letter to Members of Congress endorsing the "People's Budget.”
Next week, we’re going straight to our New York decision makers to deliver a faithful petition that demands full and fair funding for our children’s schools.

We delivered 25,000 petition signatures to our local ICE office to stop the deportation of Pastor Max – a beloved father and congregation leader.
Mennonite pastor Max Villatoro was detained last week by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on his way to work and could be deported this week. We need your signature today – tell ICE that this father and pastor needs to stay with his family and congregation.
