Community Organizing & Community Workforce initiative 

Interfaith Coalition to Restore the Water Fee Exemption for Religious Institutions

SPCDM successfully spearheaded the Interfaith Coalition to Restore the Water Fee Exemption to Religious Institutions by joining forces and forming a coalition of all faiths. The effort resulted in religious and nonprofit organizations that provided critical services to their communities to remain operable.

Historic Rosenwald
SPCDM served as the host site for 2 years in the effort to Restore the Historic Rosenwald. Elder Kevin Anthony Ford served as a task force member and successfully garnered support from elders in the community as he delivered a compelling speech to City Counsel challenging the City to move forward with the project.
