Power in Numbers
“Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.” —Micah 6:8
GOAL Justice – Greenville Organized for Accountable Leadership – is a growing interfaith coalition of 25 congregations in Greenville county organizing for justice!
Founded in 2022, we use the power of large numbers of people to hold public officials accountable and solve critical community problems. We are not a direct service provider, rather we are a grassroots, direct action, multi-issue organization.
To build power for justice, GOAL follows three annual processes:
Greenville County faces a severe housing crisis with over 30,000 households at risk of homelessness due to exorbitant housing costs and a persistent shortage in the community.
Our community faces a mental health crisis, with limited access to consistent care; GOAL urges adequate funding to fully staff call centers and provide essential support to those in need.
