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.
Faith in New York is a multi-faith, multi-issue, multi-lingual citywide network of over 70 congregations representing over 80,000 residents of New York City. We are committed to the work of justice and faith-rooted community organizing in order to influence polices and systems that will create a more just and equitable New York for all New Yorkers. Faith in New York is an affiliate of Faith in Action (formerly PICO National Network), the largest faith-based community organization in the country.
Our Areas of Work:
- Civic Engagement
- Economic Dignity
- Immigrant Justice (LA RED Campaign)
- Restorative Justice (Live Free Campaign)
Faith in New York's mission is to develop grassroots leaders and equip congregations to move significant public policy change that supports our leaders’ vision of a more just New York with excellent public schools, violence-free neighborhoods, access to good jobs, adequate and affordable health care, decent housing for all, and a place where people of all backgrounds can fully participate in economic and civic life. Faith in New York operates in low income, working class communities that are 70% immigrant and over 85% people of color.
