Interfaith Movement Promoting Action by Congregations Together (IMPACT) is a grassroots initiative with a mission to bring a greater degree of justice and fairness to the Charlottesville and Albemarle area. 33 IMPACT congregations come together to work on the root causes of community problems. IMPACT congregations range in size from 20 to 5,000 people and include Protestant, Catholic, Unitarian, Jewish and Muslim congregations. IMPACT addresses and achieves solutions to community problems through the basic organizing processes of listening/networking, research, and direct action meetings. Through coming together we build our power and ability to successfully live out God’s call. For more information, contact Erica Lloyd.
