Grants to Sojourners
2012 (Duration 1 year, 6 months)
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sojourners is a nonpartisan national Christian organization that convenes, builds alliances among, and mobilizes people of faith, focusing on racial and social justice, life and peace, and environmental stewardship. Building upon its earlier work of engaging policymakers, a broad faith constituency and the general public in a debate about the budget's significance and the values that underlie the calculations to achieve fiscal sustainability, Sojourners will use this grant for a communications and education effort to ensure that the debate about the nation's long-term fiscal future is informed by values and principles, including that deficit reduction does not put a disproportionate burden on low-income people.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Sojourners $275,000 between 2010 and 2013.
