Our Purpose

Our purpose is to…provide and advocate for the services needed by the community ( education, health care, policing, poverty, local econmic growth ) and educate youth on what is happening in our community through grassroots organizing.             The overall goal of our group is to create a new generation of grassroots organizers by showing the importance of engaging the community through direct action. Also we want to make the connection to the environmental issues that effect low income communites. Like access to quality land and water. In adiition to this there is the education of healthy food grown without pesticides or genetically modified seeds.
