A Social Justice and Faith Webzine

Our Mission

Welcome to The Social

We’re a monthly online social justice and faith magazine. Our goal is to provide our readers with a vibrant mix of articles, columns, commentary, editorials, book reviews, and interviews usually not found in the mainstream news media.

We cover some of the most challenging issues of our times, including: the widening gap between rich and poor, child poverty, media concentration and environmental degradation.

We’re also interested in how the Internet is changing social communication, art, and politics. Whether the Net will become a global village or global market, are the subjects we’ll follow with interest.

As a journal of faith we’re ecumenical in outlook. Although we follow the Catholic Church closely, we’re interested in matters connected to other Christian churches and faiths. Whatever issues we address, we’ll be searching and broadening our scope, unwilling to settle for easy answers.

Our Arts & Culture section will provide a venue for thought-provoking reviews of books, cinema, theatre, and art. We have a love of ideas and art, and we hope our readers share that too.

As we move into the twenty-first century, the challenges for those working for social justice are enormous. We want to provide informed context and fresh analysis. But we can’t do it all. That’s why we’ll be providing links to other like-minded groups and magazines. As we do this, we’ll await your comments, suggestions, and ideas.
