Building A

Moral Movement

who we are

Some issues are not left versus right, but right versus wrong.

Repairers of the Breach is a nonpartisan not-for-profit organization that seeks to build a moral agenda rooted in a framework that uplifts our deepest moral and constitutional values to redeem the heart and soul of our country. We challenge the position that the preeminent moral issues are prayer in public schools, abortion, and property rights. Instead, we declare that the moral public concerns of our faith traditions are how our society treats the poor, women, LGBTQ people, children, workers, immigrants, communities of color, and the sick. Our deepest moral traditions point to equal protection under the law, the desire for peace within and among nations, the dignity of all people, and the responsibility to care for our common home.

OUR MISSION We organize, train, and work with a diverse school of prophets from every US state and the District of Columbia who are rebuilding, raising up, and repairing the moral infrastructure of our country.

OUR MORAL AGENDA

The “Higher Ground Moral Declaration” is a nonpartisan moral public policy agenda framework for the nation at the state and federal level.

The Higher Ground Moral Declaration provides a moral agenda for our nation on issues including: democracy and voting rights; poverty and economic justice; workers’ rights; education; healthcare; environmental justice; immigrant rights and challenging xenophobia; criminal justice; LGBTQ rights; and war-mongering and the military. For each issue area, an individual moral and constitutional foundation is established. The positions are neither left nor right; neither conservative nor liberal. Rather, they are morally defensible, constitutionally consistent, and economically sound. Most importantly, they represent, as Dr. King urged, a moral revolution in values.

Poor People's Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival

Drawing on the unfinished work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1967/68 Poor People’s Campaign, which called for a “revolution of values,” Repairers of the Breach is working in partnership with the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice, the Popular Education Project, and hundreds of local and national partners, to lead the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. This multi-state movement has emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community and religious leaders, organizations, and movements fighting to end systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, environmental destruction, and other injustices.

TRAININGS & EVENTS

We organize, train, and work with a diverse school of prophets from every US state and the District of Columbia who are rebuilding, raising up, and repairing the moral infrastructure of America. While the impacts of extremism in our politics and public policy are often described through data, our trainings are always organized alongside people who are directly impacted and organizing their own communities, so that we can always put a human face on extremism.
