(Washington, DC) – Amidst a political season riddled with religious references, Faith in Public Life, joined by religious leaders from across the country, today launched Mapping Faith -- a new online database documenting a nationwide resurgence in progressive faith organizing.

This Google Maps-powered database identifies and locates 3,000 groups organizing around more than a dozen causes, including poverty, the environment, human rights and peace, race, and immigration. Searchable by issue focus, state, and zip code, Mapping Faith puts to rest those who would doubt the vitality of progressive faith organizing.
