Multi-faith ACTION Coalition was established in 2008 and comprises over 50 faith communities throughout Contra Costa County who advocate for issues that can alleviate and eliminate poverty. The Multi-faith ACTION Coalition represents Advocates & Communities Taking Initiative for Our Neighbors. Participants work together to address the root causes of poverty through advocacy and public policy change. The faith communities’ shared values and experiences as faith groups providing food, shelter and other services makes this coalition a strong and important voice for those in need.
