Our mission is to work from the faith principles and values of our members, apply those values to community issues, and take democratic action to impact existing social structures for the common good of all citizens, particularly the poor and disenfranchised.
We organize, empower and mobilize local faith organizations to address quality-of-life issues affecting the community.
We work to:
- Train members of participating congregations in leadership and organizing skills through workshops, organizational meetings, one-to-one meetings, and Statewide Leadership Training.
- Empower congregation members to confront local issues which impact the lives of themselves and their neighbors and to gradually move to bring about changes in the structures and policies of the larger Anchorage area, thereby reducing inequities and injustices which exist.
- Ensure that low- and moderate-income persons are included in decision-making in the Municipality of Anchorage, especially when these decisions affect their lives or the lives of their families.
- Strive for the common good of all the citizens by choosing issues that affect the common good of the members of participating congregations, always being aware of the demands of justice, fairness, inclusiveness, and other principles of faith and democracy.
