Who we are
We believe communities ought to determine their own futures. We bring this belief to life by training community leaders and professional organizers how to build power and take direct action on problems facing their communities. Our network of 23 grassroots organizations bring people together across racial, religious, and socioeconomic lines to pursue justice.
We train community leaders and professional organizers how to:
Listen deeply to their community for what they are struggling with and what their vision is for the future.
Research effectively to better understand problems that members of the community face, and to determine what might be done to solve those problems.
Organize & take direct action so that those who hold the power of decision making are held accountable to putting people first and solving the problems that their community faces.
