Pastor Mike McBride interviews Andrea Marta (Faith in Action)
Andrea Marta is the Executive Director of the Faith In Action Fund (FIA Fund) formerly PICO Action Fund.
Prior to her role leading FIA Fund, Andrea served as the Campaign Manager for LIVE FREE, an initiative of Faith In Action, formerly known as the PICO Nation Network. LIVE FREE focused on ending the criminalization of people of color by empowering those directly impacted by mass incarceration to lead in the local, state and national arenas. In 2016, Andrea led FIA Fund’s voter engagement campaign that helped unseat the incumbent prosecutor in Hillsborough County, Florida. Andrea began her organizing career at 14, when she joined a PICO affiliated organization in San Francisco as a volunteer leader following a drive by shooting at her church during a youth dance. In response, she helped to advocate for and design a $7 million youth center in her neighborhood.
