Fighting Poverty with Faith is building a nationwide, interfaith movement to cut domestic poverty in half by 2020. Each of our communities works tirelessly to reduce poverty, but unless we come together our reach is limited. Coordinated interfaith action is essential in our work to overcome poverty in the United States.
The annual Fighting Poverty with Faith mobilization focuses on addressing root causes of poverty. We enlist the moral authority and organizing power of the faith community to ensure meeting the needs of those living in poverty is a national priority. This mobilization utilizes the strength of the coordinated faith community to move individuals and communities to action and advocate for clear, immediate policy solutions to address the root causes of poverty.
The 2012 Fighting Poverty with Faith mobilization will take place Thursday, November 8 – Sunday, November 18. The 2012 theme is “Building Opportunity through Affordable Housing for All.”
