Building a United Interfaith Lexington through Direct-Action (BUILD) is an organization of 24 religious congregations located in Lexington, Kentucky. BUILD is an interfaith, interracial, grassroots, multi-issue, proactive organization. Since its inception in 2003, BUILD has been constituent-led and employs the practices of direct-action community organizing.

The goals of BUILD are:
· To develop a responsible organization to address local issues of concern to member congregations/groups, through a process of education, training, research, and action.
· To strengthen the individual congregations/groups by training existing leaders in organizing skills, identifying and training potential leaders, building the participation of larger numbers of their members, and attracting the participation of new members.
· To build and deepen relationships among diverse segments of our community by bringing together groups from various cultural, economic, and religious backgrounds around common interests.
· To enable religious congregations and neighborhood groups to act on our shared values of human worth, dignity, and justice.
