About Faith in Public Life
Faith in Public Life (FPL) is a strategy center for the faith community advancing faith in the public square as a powerful force for justice, compassion and the common good.
In order to maximize the faith community’s unique ability to shape public debates, FPL identifies and creates moments of opportunity, builds and supports broad coalitions, and designs and implements innovative campaigns, bold initiatives and capacity-building tools. FPL’s approach emphasizes results, rapid response, cutting-edge skills and media savvy.
In just a few years, FPL has played an important role in changing the narrative about the role of faith in politics, winning major progressive policy victories, and empowering new religious leaders to fight for social justice and the common good. Our media expertise, rapid-response capabilities and strategic campaign development have made us respected commentators in the media and valued partners with a range of religious groups working for economic and social justice. Check out our history page for examples of our accomplishments, which range from organizing a presidential candidate forum to making a critical difference in the health care reform debate to playing an integral role in the Nuns on the Bus tours.
