MICAH (Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope) is a coalition of community and faith-based organizations joining together to give a more powerful voice for issues of justice in our city. Our current platform concentrates on three pillar issues, economic equity, education equity, and race & class equity in the justice system. We organize and speak to our community and its leaders, always seeking to "do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God." The purpose of MICAH is not to replace each congregation or community organization's efforts, but instead to amplify the voice and the impact by working together interdependently.
MICAH follows the community organizing methodology of the Gamaliel Foundation. Gamaliel has worked successfully with communities across the country, including Nashville, where NOAH (Nashville Organized for Action and Hope) has become a force for change and an influencer of community policy on affordable housing, criminal justice, and economic equity.
