Know Your Neighbors
What Is Know Your Neighbors?
Know Your Neighbors is a project focused on stopping the global culture wars here at home. We develop education, mobilization, and action that directly engages the leaders of the Right who are creating bad policy and theology here at home and around the world. That means lots of exciting ways for you to get involved.
What's the Problem At Hand?
Know Your Neighbors is a longterm "clean up our backyard" campaign that recognizes two things:
U.S. actors - most of them Christian fundamentalists - are traveling the world to bring negative messages about reproductive rights and LGBTQI people to governments, pastors, and people...particularly in the Global South.
And they often back it up with a lot of resources, money, and structures to coerce the local leaders.
What these Right Wing leaders do abroad doesn't always play so well back at home in the U.S., so there's a real disconnect between what people think of them at their homebases and what they are doing on the global stage.
This new project is a creative and daring one, and Soulforce, as an organization that creatively and compassionately intervenes where religion is used to oppress because of race, gender, or sex, is positioned well in our work to be a part of this project today.
