Who We Are

Faith in Texas is a multi-racial faith movement for social justice. We are an affiliate of the Faith in Action national network, the nation’s largest network developing civic leadership in low- and moderate-income faith communities to advocate for economic and racial justice.

Our work involves bringing new voices into Texas public life! Faith in Texas trains teams of lay leaders in local churches, mosques and synagogues, serving low and moderate-income people. These Justice Teams identify systemic problems that affect their community, and move entire congregations to action through powerful policy campaigns.

In our divided state, Faith in Texas creates space for empathy, storytelling, and shared action across the boundaries of race, religion, and economics.

Our Work

Faith in Texas is a multi-racial, multi-faith movement for the common good. Our issue platform comes from deep listening in our member congregations and research led by our volunteer leaders.
