Our Mission: To activate the voices of New Yorkers of faith by building, training, and supporting grassroots congregational-based teams of congregants across the city who identify, advocate, and organize New Yorkers around issues, policies, and elections that affect our communities, neighborhoods, and city.
Our Vision: To build the Beloved City here in New York City by bringing together a multi-faith, multi-issue, multi-neighborhood base of members who ensure that New York City remains a place of sanctuary for all, regardless of race, class, age, or other identity.
Our Theory of Change: We believe that when people of faith come together in teams in our houses of worship to dream, discern, learn, and act together, prophetic change happens.
We believe that powerful relationships – with clergy, congregants, and community members and groups – drive our work, and that is through those relationships that we change policy, build power, listen deeply to each other, and bring forth the divine.
Our teams receive training from our staff and then work together to go through the following cycle of listening, researching, acting, and evaluating their campaigns in order to better learn together, understand power, undermine systemic violence and oppression, and create change.
