Faith in Indiana unites tens of thousands of people across faith, race, and place to work together for racial and economic justice in Indiana. Our six chapters are run and led by our grassroots leaders with deep roots in the communities we organize. People of color are in positions of authority and leadership, and low-income people of color drive winning campaigns on criminal justice reform, immigrant rights, gun violence reduction, and health equity.
Faith values are also a big part of what drives us. We organize people through 164 faith institutions, in partnership with Indiana’s 17 largest religious traditions, we amplify the prophetic voice of clergy from diverse backgrounds. Faith in Indiana’s sister organization, Act Indiana, is a 501c4 social welfare organization that runs large-scale voter engagement programs holding deep canvass conversations with people of color, women, and young people often ignored by traditional campaigns.
We are proud members of Faith in Action, the largest grassroots faith based organizing network in the United States with more than 1,000 congregations in 22 states and 150 cities. Our Immigrant coalition is also a member of FIRM, a grassroots network powered by Community Change.
