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.

    To the world leaders gathered in Poland for the COP24 Climate Summit:

    We’re standing with you in solidarity as we together face the consequences of climate change. I am responding by taking actions to reduce my contribution to the problem. I urge you to keep the promises you made in the Paris Agreement - and to go further - to prevent the very dangerous consequences of climate change, and protect the most vulnerable people who are impacted first and most significantly.

    Justice and Advocacy: Esther

    Right now, many Christians are feeling pulled toward advocacy on political issues (race, immigration, poverty, healthcare to name a few), but aren't sure how to root their action in their faith. Many of us know intuitively that as followers of Jesus, we ought to speak out when injustice is ordained through policies of our nation, but struggle to rise above partisan discussions when we invite our friends, church members, and communities to join us in action.

    In Jesus Name, End Family Separation

    We need Congress to do everything within their power to end the separation of families at the border. Since April 19 this policy has already separated nearly 2,000 children from their parents. We cannot remain silent while this cruel, unjust and unnecessary policy is implemented. We speak out in Jesus name -- because as his followers we cannot remain silent, particularly as our leaders have used Scripture to defend this policy. 

    Congress can urge the Administration to reverse this policy, and come up with legislative solutions that would end such cruelty. We ask that they do so quickly, decisively and make it so that no future administration can ever separate children from asylum seeking or immigrant parents again.

    We know that God is with these children and parents, and grieves deeply at what is being done to his most vulnerable children, so we too stand with them. 

    Call your member of Congress and Senators today!

    Ethical Shopping Guide

    If you're like me, and deeply care about just, ethical practices of production, you might, like me, wish to boycott purchasing all together because of what we know about the industry of clothing, food, home goods, etc. But let's face it: we still need to dress ourselves and eat breakfast before we leave the house.

    The good news, is that we can actually do good while purchasing essential - and nonessential - products. Here is a list of our vetted, and many personally tried-and-true, companies that we love. These companies do everything from taking plastic bottles to make your new favorite fleece or plush blanket, to empowering women through work and education. We hope this list helps to get you started, or meaningfully adds to your existing list. 

    As a side note: thrift and second-hand shopping is a GREAT way to go, and I actually always suggest this before purchasing brand new items. There is already an overabundance of clothing items out there that, if not picked up, will spend their second life in a landfill, often times in countries in the Global South.

    Did you know that the world now consumes about 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year, and the average American now generates 82 pounds of textile waste each year? That's about 11 million tons of textile waste from the U.S. alone. The lifespan of new clothing - from production, to transportation, laundry, and the end of life in a landfill - produces a significant amount of hazardous chemicals and greenhouse gases. For more information on this, check out this article by Greenpeace.
