faith action network
St. Leo is proud to be the first Catholic organizational member of Faith Action Network. Faith Action Network (FAN) is statewide interfaith advocacy 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization through which thousands of people and over 120 faith communities across Washington State partner for the common good. Together, we are a powerful voice of the faithful building a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.
Faith Action Network’s mission is to be a faith-inspired statewide partnership striving for a just, compassionate, and sustainable world through community building, education, and courageous public action.
They are building a widely diverse coalition of all people of faith and ally with like-minded communities and organizations across the state to take courageous action and create a more just and peaceful world.
FAN is a Network of Faith Communities that:
- Believes justice work is part of religious calling
- Communicates with elected officials about critical social issues
- Advocates for a more just and sustainable world
Faith Action Network (FAN) came into being in 2011 at the union of the Washington Association of Churches (WAC), a historical ecumenical agency, and the Lutheran Public Policy Office (LPPO), the highly effective advocacy arm of the Stateʼs largest Protestant denomination. FAN now builds a more powerful force for change. The merger opened the door for other faith communities to partner in this interfaith movement for the common good.
