Building a movement based on unconditional love towards a more just and equitable world.

Be the Change

GLIDE’s Center for Social Justice works to influence public policy and change public perceptions around poverty, discrimination, and civil and human rights. We do this through grassroots organizing, education, thought leadership, policy development and legal action. We convene policymakers and peers to amplify the voices of our community, while mobilizing congregants, clients, volunteers, donors and neighbors to become agents of social change.

We need you with us! Join with GLIDE to advance economic and social justice for all. There are many ways to be involved, make a difference, and advance a better world: Volunteer to serve a meal, join us in demonstrations and organizing for justice, help us expand voter registration and turnout. Sign up for regular communications from our advocacy team and stay up-to-date on all the ways that together we can create a more just and equitable world.

GLIDE Center for Social Justice is hosting monthly virtual events where we discuss our community’s role in advancing social justice with activist and community leaders whose work defies all odds.
