About Us

Faith in Indiana unites tens of thousands of people across faith, race, and place to work together for racial and economic justice in Indiana. 

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

Through six county chapters, we work with 164 congregations and partner organizations with deep community roots in the communities we organize. 

Faith in Indiana and our chapters are run and led by our grassroots leaders. We put people of color in positions of authority and leadership, and low-income people of color are the drivers of our program activities   

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. 

We make heavy use of the Race-Class Narrative, which is a narrative framework and strategic approach that emphasizes linking economic and racial justice, and using a people-centered storytelling approach that focuses on our values and what we want to achieve in the world. 

Faith is also a big part of the stories we tell, and we amplify the prophetic voice of clergy in partnership with Indiana’s 17 largest religious traditions. Faith in Indiana is a proud member of Faith in Action, the largest faith-based community organizing project in the nation.

Faith in Indiana’s sister organization, Act Indiana, is a 501c4 social welfare organization that convenes the state’s 501c4 voter-alignment table, which is the primary vehicle to grow independent political power for our grassroots constituencies in our state. Act Indiana is a movement leader through Community Change Action, the Movement Voter Project, and the Faith in Action Fund.
