Faith Action for Community Equity is a grassroots, interfaith 501(c)3 non-profit organization driven by a deep spiritual commitment to improving the quality of life for our members and all the people of Hawai‘i. FACE is also an active member of the People Improving Communities (PICO) National Network. Through our common values and collective power, we address the root causes of social justice challenges facing our community. As such, FACE is the only organization of its kind in Hawai‘i. A religious or civic organization becomes a member when its leadership signs our Covenant Statement. The new affiliate then engages its members in discussions in discovering their needs and concerns strengthening both the individual organization and FACE as a whole.
FACE is a membership of organizations centered on O‘ahu and Maui. We represent a large constituency that is diverse in race and ethnicity, religious affiliation, economic class, and neighborhoods. We prioritize leadership development and training which enables our members to live out our common values. We defined by a participatory structure, a high level of internal funding, and a regular listening process which is carried out by our member units to identify issues to be taken up by the larger organization
