This chapter analyzes how a congregation-based community organization, Milwaukee Innercity Congregations Allied for Hope (MICAH), developed and how it works. It then briefly examines faith-based organizing as a national movement. That is, it describes organizational arrangements and practical activities. These form the context for the cultural work of the movement. They also have a cultural element themselves, expressing in action many of the core values of faith-based organizing. Furthermore, the practical character of the movement—the kind of people it enlists and so on—is something one needs to know when considering how its cultural work might relate to other forms of progressive politics.

Keywords:   congregation-based community organization, Milwaukee Innercity Congregations Allied for Hope, national movement, cultural work, progressive politics, organizational arrangements
