Started in 1982, the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy is Virginia’s oldest faith-based advocacy group. We are a broadly diverse, morally driven group of advocates working to advance public policies that better serve low-income, vulnerable, and underrepresented communities in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We engage and educate people of faith and the general public regarding critical social issues, the legislative process, and the call to advocacy.
Through partnerships with other statewide non-profit advocacy organizations and our own grassroots networks, we empower and unite faithful advocates in Virginia to learn, pray, and act.
There are a number of ways to get involved with the Virginia Interfaith Center and our advocacy work. The first step is to learn about our priority issues and about how to be an effective advocate on those issues. Access our resources or connect with our faith-based partners.
We think faith communities should be involved in public policy. Your congregation can become a Congregational Partner and become a powerful, moral voice for social change. Participation in the network also provides faith communities with access to Virginia Interfaith Center’s wide range of advocacy resources, from education curriculum and legislative updates to advocacy training and leadership development.
Sign up for our emails and stay informed through action alerts where you can raise your voice and call your legislator as bills move through the General Assembly. Participate in denomination-specific lobby days and local events. Get connected to other Center advocates in your community through our local chapters.
