Faith & Action Project at CTS receives $200,000 grant

Local efforts to address the causes of poverty received added momentum in the form of a $200,000 grant from the Lumina Foundation. Awarded to help the Faith & Action Project of Christian Theological Seminary address social justice and racial equity in Indianapolis, the award is part of a $2.5 million program that Lumina President and CEO Jamie Merisotis described as his organization’s response to recent racial incidents and ongoing racial injustice.

“The Faith & Action Project is honored to be a part of Lumina Foundation’s ongoing work for racial and economic equity,” said Faith & Action Project Director Lindsey Nell Rabinowitch. “It will be a great boost for our efforts to help people understand the challenges racial injustice can present and bring the community together to solve problems.”

Launched in 2016, the Faith & Action Project at Christian Theological Seminary is supported from the Mike and Sue Smith Family Fund as a multiyear effort to help reduce poverty in Indianapolis. In addition to providing grants, the Faith & Action Project has held community wide events and attracted national poverty experts to Central Indiana.
