We act towards justice by building relationships within our communities

and across lines of difference, developing our leaders' skills in the public arena,

and taking action on issues of common concern.

MICAH - Virtual Celebration

The Judeo/Christian prophet reminds us in Micah 6:8. God wants us to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God

From local faith community outreach actions to countywide collaborations through BIO, community organizing helps us answer the call of MICAH, building power, by working together, to make the changes needed in our county. 

Continuing to build relationships within the Latinx community

Volunteer Community Car Ride Service Campaign

We're building relationships between those facing transportation challenges and regional power brokers, researching and developing innovative models for statewide transportation, and pushing for their implementation.  

"Organizing is a magic, born of materials we all have:

stories, interest in others, being moved to action on behalf of relationships…

all these elements coming together deepens and enriches community."
