Faith Forward Network

Faith Forward Network works to improve social justice in North Dakota by mobilizing faith leaders and faithful citizens. While many of us are involved with compassion ministries, we also see a need to address the causes of social justice issues through policy changes and community organizing. We are called by our religious principles to improve creation care (environmental justice), economic justice, human trafficking, and human rights in our state.
