Mission

Faith Action Network’s mission is to be a faith-inspired statewide partnership striving for a just, compassionate, and sustainable world through community building, education, and courageous public action.

We will build a widely diverse coalition of all people of faith and ally with like-minded communities and organizations across the state to take courageous action and create a more just and peaceful world.

 

We Are a Network of Faith Communities That:

  • Believes justice work is part of our religious calling
  • Communicates with elected officials about critical social issues
  • Advocates for a more just and sustainable world

History

Faith Action Network (FAN) came into being in 2011 at the union of the Washington Association of Churches (WAC), a historical ecumenical agency, and the Lutheran Public Policy Office (LPPO), the highly effective advocacy arm of the Stateʼs largest Protestant denomination. FAN now builds a more powerful force for change. The merger opens the door for other faith communities to partner in this interfaith movement for the common good.

Faith Action Network is a statewide interfaith advocacy 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization through which thousands of people and over 100 faith communities across Washington State partner for the common good. Together, we are a powerful voice of the faithful building a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.
