1508197622922-Banner+with+text.pngWe are building a social justice movement in Northern Nevada by uniting communities deeply rooted in faith and communities deeply rooted in the pain of injustice to organize and mobilize for powerful social change.

We partner with faith communities to deepen their prophetic engagement in social justice issues. We develop effective leaders and robust ministries that empower faith communities to create change through community & congregational outreach, intentional relationship building, coalition building, and strategic social action.

We organize and develop leaders in the communities most impacted by poverty and injustice to ensure that they are the architects of their own future, able to influence the systems that deeply impact their lives.

Finally, we convene and enable powerful coalitions of faith communities, direct-service providers, labor unions, civic organizations, and, most importantly, marginalized communities. These coalitions lead the fight for positive systemic change in our community.

Our current community organizing efforts are:

  • The Weeklies Organizing Initiative: We are organizing residents of weekly motels to stop displacement and homelessness caused by gentrification, to fight for better living conditions inside the motels, and to increase affordable housing options in the community. We are currently holding monthly community potlucks at different weekly motels and developing a Speakers Bureau under-housed leaders who use their stories and experience to raise awareness and invite community partners into greater civic engagement and community building. 
  • Home Means Nevada: We are convening this coalition of faith communities, direct service providers, business leaders, labor unions, and affected community members in order to bring a powerful and unified voice to the community conversation around housing and homelessness. We are building community support for a tiny home village that will serve as a transitional living program for some of our houseless neighbors, mobilizing congregations to staff an emergency overflow homeless shelter, and also laying the foundation for a major campaign to significantly increase local investment in affordable housing development.
  • Rapid Response Reno: We are building a large network of trained community leaders centered around a central hotline that the community can call to report ICE activity. This network will consist of faith communities, direct-service providers, volunteer attorneys, and other community leaders who quickly and powerfully respond to arrests, detentions, deportations, and other threats that the immigrant community currently faces.
