Indianapolis Congregation Action Network (IndyCAN)  The Indianapolis Congregation Action Network (IndyCAN) develops people of faith at the grassroots level into leaders who can achieve power for positive change.  IndyCAN is a catalyst for marginalized peoples and faith communities to act collectively for racial and economic equity in Indiana. IndyCAN is a multi-racial, multi-class, multi-faith, multi-ethnic, non-partisan organization that reaches tens of thousands of people from more than 20 member congregations across Central Indiana, committed to advancing the leadership of the most marginalized (returning citizens, immigrants, excluded workers and youth).

Our leaders connect community organizations with civic and political leaders. Together, we are building relationships, identifying common concerns, finding solutions and taking action to improve the quality of life and expanding opportunity for all of Indianapolis’ families — especially the most vulnerable.

By working together, we expand the human capacity of our citizens, turning individuals into a collaborative, organized movement of people with values and power — strong partners with public officials and policy makers who impact long-term, measurable systemic change.  Together, these initiatives will help us achieve our bold vision of “Opportunity for All.”  This platform includes:

  1. End Mass Incarceration and Violence
  2. Economic Dignity
  3. Immigrant Inclusion

IndyCAN is not aligned explicitly with any candidate or party. We do not endorse or support candidates for office. Instead, we develop our stances on state policies and systems based on our faith and values. Ultimately, we stand for equality, community and dignity for all.

Leader: Rita Englum, 317-257-8039,
