I support Micah Challenge because I believe that extreme poverty will not be overcome by securing more charity, but more justice.  Micah Challenge is a voice standing with the impoverished--calling out for a transformed world where people are no longer oppressed by systems of oppression, but have abundant life.

    We fight fiercely for the world as it ought to be -- free from poverty and injustice.

    For over a decade Micah Challenge has been a leading voice advocating to end extreme poverty. We have educated, inspired, and mobilized tens of thousands of people to use their voices to fight for a more just world. We believe worship begins with song and prayer, and leads us to bold action that helps create the world we want to see. We can't encounter God's relentless love and justice without being compelled to seek justice ourselves. 

    Last year, Micah Challenge became an important voice for Creation Care by launching our first ever campaign For the Love Of to disrupt climate change. We reached over 1,000,000 people and helped them understand that climate change is a human rights issue that disproportionately impacts our most impoverished neighbors. Tens of thousands of people around the country committed to pray, live, and consume goods with God's beautiful creation and most vulnerable children in mind. 

    Your gift will help us continue this important work as we seek to:

    • launch the "For the Love of All Creation" campaign to hold our next President and newly elected Congress accountable to the Paris Treaty--An historic global agenda to combat climate change through reducing emissions, and helping impoverished nations adapt to climate change. 
    • publish the "For All Creation" book study, modeled after Live Justly, that helps develop a creation care theology and make the connections between current environmental challenges and human trafficking, poverty, hunger, and other critical issues. 
    • continue to build a movement of Christians with an active and lived theology of justice, working for the restoration of all creation, standing up against oppression, and standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world living in poverty and oppression.
