The Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope is a nonprofit "organization of organizations" with a mission of equipping people of faith and goodwill to organize communities for systemic change through collective action. As a coalition of over 80 congregations, unions, and community nonprofits, our justice work focuses on 3 issue areas: Economic Equity, Education Equity, and Race and Class Equity in the Justice System. Since entering the public arena in 2018, MICAH has made a substantial impact across Shelby County and gained a frontline reputation on our issues, including improving public transit, the first conviction integrity unit in Shelby County, and a transparent and accountable search for a new school district superintendent.

We celebrated our fifth year with a combination of jazz, sophistication, and fun! With the help of our investors, we were able to surpass our limits and reach beyond what is, to what could be. The celebration started with refreshing mocktails and a brunch bar that added to the festive atmosphere. We recognized and showed our appreciation to our presidents, executive team, and partners for their contributions to our success!
We are still accepting donations to continue our fifth-year celebration.
