The Coalition for American Renewal is a national leadership network dedicated to renewing our vision and empowering our citizens to build an America that lives up to its founding ideals.Our goal is to rekindle the energy and creativity that have shaped our nation, based on the best attributes of the American spirit. To that end, the Coalition for American Renewal works to:
- Awaken our citizens to the serious challenges facing our nation today.

- Engage, organize and mobilize our citizens in grassroots initiatives that put our principles into action.
Americans today are confronted with grave issues that affect the lives of millions of citizens, and with serious consequences for succeeding generations. The economic crisis of recent years is growing into a political crisis; large majorities of Americans no longer have confidence that the political process truly serves the greater interests of our nation. nor has the capacity to reform itself. At the same time, there is mounting evidence that Americans now lack consensus on the fundamental values necessary to an ethical society.
American history, from the birth narrative of the Pilgrim fathers to the emancipation of slaves and movements for social justice in the 20th century, has underscored the essential role of faith and conscience in public life. Faith leaders have repeatedly stepped forward in times of crisis to challenge the status quo, remind us of our founding ideals, and inspire us to take action.
The Coalition for American Renewal is calling leaders of all faiths to our common mission to awaken the American spirit and character, that together we can rise above the political and other divides, and build an America that lives up to its founding ideals.
