The Micah Project’s mission is to bring people of all faiths together to build relationships, develop strong leaders, and improve the quality of life in our communities.
Why We're Great >
Our vision is to unify and empower people to participate in the democratic process, thereby maximizing their ability to exert influence on behalf of their congregation and their community for the common good of the city and region. Micah helps congregations to put their faith values into action and to become more publicly-engaged.
The Micah Project is a faith-based organization established in 2007 by clergy who wanted to see real change in their communities. Since then, Micah has won important victories in areas such as criminal justice reform, education, and healthcare.
The Micah Project is an interfaith, non-partisan organization that works with people of all faiths to build on their faith values to create a more equitable world. Micah moves power on a local, state, and national level. The Micah Project has 16 member congregations in Orleans and Jefferson Parish and represents over 12,000 people. The Micah Project is an affiliate of the PICO National Network, who, with more than 1,000 member institutions representing one million families in 150 cities and 17 states is the largest faith-based community organizing effort in the United States.
