About Faith in Indiana
Faith in Indiana unites tens of thousands of people across faith, race, and place to work together for racial and economic justice in Indiana.
In our work, we center the leadership of Black people, immigrants, Muslims, returning citizens, women and young people.
Through six county chapters, we work with 164 congregations and partner organizations with deep roots in the communities we organize.
Faith in Indiana and our chapters are run and led by our grassroots leaders. People of color are in positions of authority and leadership, and low-income people of color are the drivers of our campaigns and strategies.
In addition to believing strongly that power must be shared equitably in our organization and our society, we also believe that leaders are developed, not born; and that relationships grounded in trust and vulnerability coupled with radical accountability and direct, courageous communication allow for each of us to bring our full, brilliant selves to the table.
Faith values are also a big part of what drives us. We organize people through 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.
