Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope (MICAH)

Micah 6:8 What does the Lord require of you? Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God. 

The current MICAH platform operates under three pillars, Education Equity, Economic Equity, and Immigration and Intercultural Equity. Within each of these headings the real work is done by those interested in one or more of these particular problem areas, which are often straightforward, but extensive in the depth of long unaddressed obstacles to reform social injustices. Each of the three groups or pillars meets once a month; additionally, there is a monthly meeting for Memphis youth and an issues meeting held monthly open to all who are interested in the detailed task force strategies for change. Before COVID-19, meetings were held around town in different venues. Today, meetings are held virtually on Zoom or by phone.
