Civic or Social?

Is there a trend developing? After a couple of decades of civic activism among Christians, are we now moving to social activism?  It seems so. Christian leaders are becoming increasingly vocal about issues such as poverty, fairness, labor, etc.

Is this a legitimate transition, and if so, what can be done to prevent social activism from failing as dramatically as civic activism seems to have.
