The impact of your support
Faith in Action’s national Flipping the Formula civic engagement program prioritizes voters of color, women and millennials while dismantling dominant norms of the voting industry that fail to build power for our people. Faith in Action has an organizing presence and leads non-partisan voter education and outreach in 21 states. We also have an expanding web of faith institutions and community leaders determined to hold our government accountable for a moral vision of society in which all families thrive.

Why this work is important
We’re facing a moral crisis over whether we all matter and belong, what voice we have over the decisions that shape our lives and communities, and what obligations we have to one another and to our planet. We believe in a society free of economic oppression, racism and discrimination in which every person lives in a safe and healthy environment, is respected and included, and has agency over the decisions that shape their lives. Faith in Action has a unique role to play in building a larger movement for change. This contribution flows from our capacity to engage large numbers of people through trusted community institutions, speak prophetically about the moral dimensions of political choices, and bring people together across race, class, religion, urban/suburban/rural, and region to make progress on racial and economic justice.
Our track record
In 2018, Faith in Action implemented our largest civic engagement cycle yet (following previous large-scale programs we ran in 2012, 2014 and 2016), with 577,352 live person-to-person conversations with voters and 153,447 voters registered. Our 2018 relational organizing program trained more than 500 local leaders and volunteers to contact their friends, families and fellow congregants to talk about the election and why it mattered to them. In 2019, we led our first-ever certificate course for 35 political leads in our network organizations, an intensive 17-week online course with weekly classes, workshops, reading and lectures, as well as a two-day in-person workshop on program planning.
