Join over 1,500 Central Valley families, elected officials, candidates, faith leaders, and community partners as together we proclaim a NEW vision for life in the Valley rooted inracial, economic, and environmental dignity for all people during this critically important election year. 
Together we will launch Faith in the Valley, a new faith-rooted grassroots community organization in California’s Central Valley of 120 congregations representing over 100,000 families from Kern, Fresno, Merced, Stanislaus, and San Joaquin Counties.
We believe a different, better future is possible for the Central Valley if we work together. A future in which everyone is included, treated as sacred, has a chance to thrive and live a decent life. A future in which no one is seen as “less than” or lives in fear because of the color of their skin, their legal status, or the amount of money they earn. A future where everyone has access to good jobs, clean air and water, and alternatives to incarceration
Today, too many people cannot find work that pays enough to support their families. Too many young people feel they have to leave the Valley to make a life. The reason is clear – we’ve allowed our Valley economy to be dominated by extraction rather than investment, extraction from our people through poverty-wage jobs, extraction from our land and our air through uncontrolled water and air pollution, extraction from our communities through mass incarceration.
We’re coming together to create a different, a better future and take control of the Central Valley for its families and communities.  Bus transportation from Stockton to Fresno and return is provided.

 This can only happen if we unite together across region, race and religion.

Join us on September 10th!
