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.

MICAH's 5th Annual Public Meeting

Sunday, October 23, 2022 @ 4:00 - 6:00 PM

First Baptist Church - Broad Ave, 2835 Broad Ave, Memphis, TN 38112

MICAH's Annual Public Meeting occurs each fall with the goal of engaging the broader community of Memphis and Shelby County into the work MICAH is doing in a distinct moment. The Public Meeting shows a “slice” of our current work. It's a powerful time of reconnecting and community building with neighbor and partners.

Want to caravan and go as a group? Gather with Rev. Laura Gettys at 3pm in the GSL Peabody parking lot across from the church.
