SOCIAL JUSTICE - FRANCISCAN ACTION & ADVOCACYV.O.I.C.E. (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement)
Founded in 2008, VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement) is a coalition of almost 50 faith communities and civic organizations in Northern Virginia working together to build power in middle and low-income communities. They organize in Prince William, Fairfax, and Arlington counties, as well as the City of Alexandria uniting people across lines of race, class, religion, political party and geography to take action on key issues in our community including but not limited to affordable housing, access to health and dental care, and immigrant rights.
VOICE is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation’s first and largest network of multi-faith citizen organizations, which has seven decades of experience winning tough battles on housing, health care, education, and other issues across the nation. VOICE works most closely with Metro IAF affiliates in the East, Midwest and Southeast.
