Our Purpose

Our purpose is to work in multiple ways to maintain and improve our community and neighboring communities by using historic preservation, solar power development, workforce education, and fair housing activism as economic development tools to stabilize urban communities so as to provide a climate-healthy and alternative to suburban sprawl, and at the same time to train and empower and empower diverse populations to realize their collect human potential.
