ISAAC is an interfaith organizing network of congregations and strategic partners working together to build a more just community.

We are Christians, Jews, Muslims, Unitarians and Non-Religious. We are Black, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Indigenous, Middle Eastern and White. We are Immigrants. We are suburban, inner-city and rural. We are haves, have-nots, and have-a- little-want-mores. We are bold, tenacious, and we don’t back down. We are Kalamazoo County!
Be a part of our work to “do justice” (Micah 6:8). Your gift helps us build the Beloved Community by increasing support for policies and practices that create equity in Kalamazoo County and across Michigan.

"ISAAC is one of the few social justice organizations that actually upholds and practices principles of social justice. ISAAC is no joke, when they say they are working on social justice issues, they are really working on social justice issues."
Dr. Charles Warfield, NAACP President
