The Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition is known for its
outstanding membership driven, social justice community organizing.
The mission of the NWBCCC is to build power through relational
organizing and issue campaigns that recruit and train individual and
institutional members; energize institutions, win concrete victories
that improve material conditions for community members, and change
public and private policies that affect the Northwest Bronx. NWBCCC
wins policy change on housing, economic development, education,
immigration, and other issues of concern to its members. NWBCCC has
strong presence in national organizing networks, including the
Gamaliel Foundation, the National Training and Information Center
(National People's Action), and the Center for Community Change.
We want a neighborhood where engaged local grassroots community
leadership are able to effectively win policy demands through
negotiating with elected officials and other power brokers and
transfer leadership skills to local residents in order to build a
model for responsible community and youth development. We want an
active citizenry that ensures democracy, and a local government that
provides basic human needs like quality housing and education,
healthcare, jobs with dignity, and a clean and healthy environment.
