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.  Act Indiana is our 501(c)4 organization that gives us a platform to organize and advocate directly in our state’s elections and political process.

In our work, we center the leadership of Black people, immigrants, Muslims, returning citizens, women and young people.

Faith in Indiana is dramatically scaling up our organizing efforts to build a new people-centered democracy and win real change; reduce mass incarceration and gun violence, a caring economy, climate justice, immigrant rights, and freedom to vote.

Our chapters, including the Immigrant Coalition, 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.  Through six geographic and constituency based chapters, we work with 125 congregations and partner organizations with deep roots in the communities we organize.

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.

Our Immigrant coalition provides leadership to national campaigns for immigrant justice through La Red, a campaign of Faith in Action and  FIRM, a grassroots network powered by Community Change.
