Founded in 2008, VOICE is a non-partisan coalition of almost 50 faith communities and civic organizations in Northern Virginia working together to build power in middle and low-income communities. We organize in Prince William, Fairfax, and Arlington counties as well as the City of Alexandria uniting people across lines of race, class, religion, political party and geography to take action on key issues in our community including but not limited to affordable housing, access to health and dental care, and immigrant rights.
VOICE is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. VOICE is an independent and non-partisan organization led by a strategy team of religious, lay, and community leaders from across Northern Virginia. VOICE is funded by dues paid by member institutions (congregations, temples, mosques, union locals, business groups, schools, health centers, etc.) and grants from foundations.
VOICE is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation’s first and largest network of multi-faith citizen organizations, which has seven decades of experience winning tough battles on housing, health care, education, and other issues across the nation. VOICE works most closely with Metro IAF affiliates in the East, Midwest and Southeast.
