As progressive groups try to negotiate the compromise that Ferree & Martin (1995) describe, many ask themselves hard questions about who they are, what they do, how they do their work, and with whom they are doing it. Organizations often ask such questions during a strategic planning process. What is different about this moment in history is that many organizations are now asking these questions to intentionally link their work to the development of a broad movement for progressive social change. The story of the faith-based organization ISAIAH illustrates a number of these questions and one organization’s attempt to respond.
