In this paper, we take up notions of "citizenship", "democracy", "political community" and "social movements" within the context of diversity. We emphasize that people are moral beings, and for citizens who are members of a political community, their membership articulates their moral values as they appeal to unity in terms of the common good or interest. To this background we reconstruct social movements, first and foremost, as friendship groupings, and then as political forces for expanding the span of citizenship.
