What does "interfaith" mean?

The Racine Interfaith Coalition is a non-profit organization. 
Our members belong to a variety of churches and different religions.

RIC is represented by Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans, Muslims, Unitarian Universalists, Jews and Methodists.

All faiths are welcome and respected.



Our Vision
The Beloved Community:

  • All people share in the wealth of the earth
  • People see each other as sisters and brothers
  • Disputes are resolved peacefully in which adversaries       are reconciled
  • People are willing to sacrifice for the good of others
  • A just society: human rights are upheld; people live           in respectful relationships with each other and the earth 
  • A compassionate society: a community of people acting     with and for those who suffer

All of these contribute to a healthy community.




Our Mission
RIC is a group of diverse faith communities working together to address the root causes of social injustice and poverty in the Racine community. 

RIC does this through community organizing, education and the application of our common faith values to the structures, systems and laws of our society.

It has been nearly 1 year since Richardo Fierro, was taken into custody by Immigration Custom Enforcement (ICE).

Richardo is a long time Racine community organizer who was taken from his home and his family Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

As the main source of income for his family of seven children, his mother, father and physically disabled brother, Ricardo’s absence has brought unimaginable hardship to his family and loved ones over the past year.

We are still fighting to bring Richardo home to his family and to the Racine community, he remains in detention in Kankakee, Illinois.

Ricardo and his family are in desperate need of donations!


Please show support by helping Richardo and his family during these awful times by following the link below:
