ISSUES WE ALL AGREE ON
Faith Action for Community Equity (Faith Action, formerly known as FACE) is a grassroots, interfaith 501(c)3 non-profit organization driven by a deep spiritual commitment to improving the quality of life for our members and all the people of Hawaii. Through our common values and collective power, we address the root causes of social justice challenges facing our community.
Faith Action for Community Equity is the only organization of its kind in Hawaii.
We represent a large constituency that is diverse in race and ethnicity, religious affiliation, economic class, and neighborhoods. We prioritize accountability, leadership development and training, a bottom-up participatory structure and a high level of internal funding.
We, the members of Faith Action are a multicultural people, richly diverse in ethnicity, language, economics, and faith. We are convinced that, at every level of society, our system of power and power sharing, originally based on democratic traditions, is not working for all people.
Founded in 1996, Faith Action has been committed to listening to the concerns of its members to identify the issues that will be addressed by the organization. Our organizing work, including issue research, education of our members and the wider community and action, has improved the conditions for all the residents of Hawaii.
