GLIDE is a nationally recognized center for social justice, dedicated to fighting systemic injustices, creating pathways out of poverty and crisis, and transforming lives. GLIDE is on the forefront of addressing some of society’s most pressing issues, including poverty, housing and homelessness, and racial and social justice.

GLIDE’s mission is to create a radically inclusive, just, and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. Our Core Values emerge from GLIDE as a spiritual movement. They are rooted in empowerment, recovery, and personal transformation.  

GLIDE’s Center for Social Justice works to build a social justice movement to influence public policy on poverty, food insecurity, housing, discrimination, racial justice and human rights.

We do this through grassroots organizing, community education and engagement, thought leadership, and policy development. We convene community members and policymakers to amplify the voices of the community. In addition, we mobilize GLIDE clients, congregants, volunteers, supporters, and neighbors to become changemakers.

Our transformative programs revolve around deep and soulful introspective discussions, workshops, and experiences that inspire participants to become truth seekers and truth tellers in our world. As a result, together, we become the change that we need today.
