Christians for Social Action (CSA) is a group of scholars and practitioners, stirring the imagination for a fuller expression of Christian faithfulness and a more just society.

CSA celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Chicago Declaration!

Save the date for a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the document that launched Christians for Social Action, The Chicago Declaration of Evangelical Social Concern, written by 53 denominationally diverse Evangelicals as a call to reject racism, economic injustice, violence, and sexism. 

Join us at Wheaton College on November 29th for a workshop, panel discussion, and view of the CSA and Ron Sider archives. These events, co-hosted by CSA and Wheaton College, invite the public to explore the origins of the Chicago Declaration and its continuing relevance for today.


Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Issues are big and complex.  Initiatives provide a starting point or additional challenge for people already involved. God invites us to participate in the work of shalom (peace with justice). These initiatives provide a starting point and resources for engaging with some of the world’s most challenging issues.
