Faith in Public Life is working toward advancing and defending just and equitable policies for all Americans.
IN THE NEWS
Faith in Public Life has been on the forefront of fighting for racial justice in everywhere we’re working. From reforming the criminal justice system in Georgia to marching for voting rights in Washington, DC, we stand in a long line of prophetic leaders who aren’t satisfied with just denouncing injustice but who ‘pray with their feet’ to bring real freedom.
In our country, people of color are under attack daily, from police brutality to voting rights restrictions. As people of faith, we are called to build a society where everyone is safe, everyone is respected and everyone can share in the great experiment of America. These are some ways we are working to do that.
