DART(Direct Action and Research Training Center) is a national network of congregation-based community organizations spread throughout thirty-one metropolitan areas in ten states. Each local organization is an independent, 501 c (3) nonprofit with its own unique name, funding, and staff. Each organization follows DART’s method of organizing, but determine their own issues and solutions locally. Their organizers are trained through the DART Organizers Institute and receive on-going training from DART’s national staff.

In January 2023, a sponsoring committee made up of over 50 faith communities began laying the foundation for a permanent justice ministry organization in Sedgwick County, Kansas. Over the course of the year the sponsoring committee elected interim officers, adopted bylaws, and approved a formal process for membership in Justice Together, DART’s newest affiliate. 

DART’s mission is to engage congregations in doing justice.
