ISAIAH & Faith in Minnesota

Alexa Horwart is the Lead Organizer for ISAIAH and Faith in Minnesota, state-wide, multi-racial, state-wide, grassroots membership organizations composed of community-based institutions such as mosques, churches, childcare centers and barbershops/beauty shops. ISAIAH is a hub for community-based organizing, creating community-owned, power-building “homes” for constituencies such as the Muslim Coalition of ISAIAH, the Black Barbershop and Black Congregational Collaborative, Kids Count on Us (500 community-based childcare centers), the Rural Organizing Project along with geographic chapters in the Twin Cities, small towns and regional centers across the state. Alexa has been leading ISAIAH and Faith in MN’s statewide community organizing and legislative campaign efforts for a decade focused on climate action, paid family leave, health care access and expanding democracy. In 2023 ISAIAH, alongside partners, won a slate of significant legislative victories including: a bill that will require all utilities in the state to reach 100% clean energy by 2030, Restoring the Vote which will re-enfranchise 55,000 Minnesotans, a state-run Paid Family and Medical Leave program, the Democracy for the People Act (Automatic Voter Registration amongst other pro-democracy provisions) and 1 billion of public investment going into a mixed-model, public childcare system with a new Department for Children and Families. Horwart has a Master's in Public Policy and was a Fulbright Fellow to Indonesia from 2009-2011.
