A Mighty Stream

An Interfaith Community of Sacred Activists for Racial Justice.

“Let justice roll down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.”

– Amos 5:24

What is A Mighty Stream (AMS)?

In the aftermath of the George Floyd tragedy, EquaSion, a non-partisan civic organization, developed AMS to address racial injustice through interfaith involvement. The goal is to organize and unite Cincinnati’s diverse faith communities into a moral force to take action individually and collectively, privately and publicly, spiritually and materially, to advance the cause of racial justice through sacred activism, including education, dialogue, community-building, and advocacy for policies and legislation to remediate systemic inequities.

To date, 34 faith-based organizations representing many of our community’s world religions have become AMS Participants. the religious and faith-based organizations listed here have ADOPTED and STAND UNITED behind the Resolutions of A Mighty Stream. We welcome the involvement of faith-based organizations of all traditions in Greater Cincinnati.
