Micah Challenge USA mobilizes communities to end extreme poverty.

We work with communities to change attitudes, behavior, and policies that perpetuate injustice and deny God’s will for all creation to flourish.

We pray with our feet hands and heart "on earth as it is in heaven"...in heaven there will be no hunger, poverty, or injustice!

We are part of a global Micah movement in 50 countries working for a world free of injustice, poverty, and conflict.

Join the movement to mobilize your community in advocacy, prayer, and living justly!

He has shown you, O Mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8
