About Us

NY Faith & Justice began in June 2006 when four New Yorkers met for the first time in Washington D.C. They arrived at the Sojourners / Call to Renewal Pentecost Conference as strangers. They left with common vision inspired by one dangerous thought: “What if the body of Christ came together in all its diversity? And what if that diverse body spoke with one voice about one thing – poverty?” 

Within months, NY Faith and Justice was on its way to becoming a diverse movement of churches, organizations, and individuals united in common mission. NY Faith & Justice now has more than 100 individual members, 17 formal organizational partners and scores of churches and organizations partnering informally through collaborative initiatives focused in three strategic areas of interest.:
  • Poverty Related Violence
  • Environmental Justice
  • Immigration Reform
