Faith in Texas - PICO
Faith in Texas is a multi-racial movement that organizes congregations across social divides for economic and racial justice. By training teams of lay leaders in local churches, mosques and synagogues, and serving low-to-moderate-income people, Justice Teams are able to identify systemic problems that affect their community and move entire congregations to action through powerful policy campaigns. Funding is requested to support the development of civic leaders in under-represented populations, serving predominately people of color.
