CCISCO helps everyday people win extraordinary victories, not by speaking for them, but by providing a vehicle for them to speak, act and engage in the public arena for themselves. Since 1996, we have been organizing a voice for justice and equity in Contra Costa. We are a multi-ethnic, multi-generational, interfaith federation of 25 congregations and youth institutions representing over 35,000 families.
CCISCO believes that all faith communities are called to seek justice and peace for all people. We seek to answer this call by empowering people to transform their communities. We are a unique community organization in the region that is successfully building bridges across boundaries of faith, race, geography, generation and economic class. We believe in building unity through diversity.
We are primaly focused on organizing around health care access, immigrant integration, housing, education, and violence prevention.
