MCU (Metropolitan Congregations United)
MCU is an interfaith and diverse community organization where religious congregations (Catholic, Protestant, Judaic, and Islamic) in the St. Louis metropolitan region act on their faith and work for a common purpose by putting our values in action in the center of the political process. MCU operates on the belief that all people should have access to a living wage, quality education, adequate housing, affordable health care, and a safe place to raise children. Systemic change is needed to give citizens a greater voice in how public policy decisions are made and how resources are allocated in the region. A solution to this problem is community organizing: creating coordinated efforts that help individuals become informed about issues affecting themselves and the region and encouraging them to take an active role in influencing public policy. To this end, MCU was formed to educate and train citizens on how to do these things.
