About CAJE


Congregations Acting for Justice and Empowerment (CAJE) is a nonprofit group of 23 local organizations—representing people from all walks of life—in Vanderburgh, Posey and Warrick counties in southwestern Indiana.

We're Christians, Hindus, Muslims and Unitarian Universalists, but we work to better the lives of everyone in our community.

We're not just advocates for needed change—we actively identify, research and create solutions that tackle critical social issues by using a proven multi-step process.

We work directly with stakeholders—politicians, law enforcement, service providers and everyday citizens—to implement solutions that achieve true, long-lasting change.

And we're making a difference.

Learn more about CAJE’s past and current initiatives.


CAJE is one collective voice seeking justice for those whose individual voices may never be heard. Our process empowers leaders and citizens to make serious, long-lasting change.
