AMP: Grassroots²

Bronx, NY

Northwest Bronx Community Clergy Coalition

Vision: NBCCC believes that grassroots leaders are essential to a healthy democracy that is on the road to equity and social justice. NBCCC has a tradition of broad-based, membership driven, social justice community organizing. NBCCC seeks social, economic, environmental, and racial justice for all of the Northwest Bronx.

Impact: NBCCC builds power through relational organizing and issue campaigns that recruit and train individual and orgs, energize institutions, win concrete victories improving material conditions for community members, change public and private policies that affect the Northwest Bronx, and alter the relations of power. NBCCC’s multi-issue approach relies on a united constituency constructing shared power in campaigns to relieve the immediate and material suffering.
