The Direct Action and Research Training Center, Inc. (DART) is a national network of 21 justice ministry organizations that unite congregations across racial, religious and socioeconomic lines to pursue justice in their communities. Unlike charities or direct service providers, DART organizations seek long-term, sustainable improvements to systems (e.g., school system, criminal justice system, etc). DART organizations regularly conduct direct action assemblies in which thousands of organized people from a cross-section of faith traditions publicly hold decision-makers accountable on justice issues that affect their communities.
Recent victories by DART organizations include: multi-million dollar investments in affordable housing, increased access to primary health and dental care, statewide legislation to rein in the payday loan industry, implementation of restorative justice practices in public schools, and expanding drug treatment programs to reduce criminal recidivism.
