Faith in Action
Grant Type: Program/Project
Duration: Jan 1, 2019 - Dec 31, 2019
Faith in Action works to create racial and economic justice in the U.S. by organizing people of faith and those most oppressed by unjust systems and policies.
The Muslim Power Building Project develops the capacity of American-Muslim organizers to engage their communities in the movement for racial justice, deepens Muslim organizing, and intersects with parallel movements. In 2019, MPBP plans to launch and support its second class of fellows to build out networks and develop the leadership we need to serve as the catalyst for uniting an intersectional faith voice, building resilience, and adding the sophisticated organizing strategy that the American Muslim community direly needs. This includes coordinating at least one, three-day training to deepen networks, coordinate, provide feedback on new curriculum, learn from each other, build the field and strengthen American-Muslim civil society by embedding leadership and knowledge within the American-Muslim community, and ensuring that the next generation of leaders can benefit from existing systems, mentors, and models for leadership and organizing.
