OCCCO believes in the dignity of all people--that all residents of Orange County have the right to live with Dignity, Not Fear. Through its Leadership Academy, OCCCO prepares leaders to understand themselves and their community better. They learn how to transform their communities to be more equitable for their families.
"The change to district elections in Santa Ana is not just a victory for Asian-Americans; it is progress towards fair representation for all people, a better democracy." - LienTuong Rose Nguyen, Community Organizer
OCCCO works with young people and adults in congregations, communities, and schools who are motivated by their values to work for justice and build community. Moreover, OCCCO works for systemic change by developing leaders and educating voters to use their faith voices at city hall.
"I've learned to believe in my own voice and use it to its full ability to move people and make connections. Now I am more confident when I speak out about my opinions and emotions." - Dorothy, Youth Canvasser
I donated in support of this campaign.
I love OCCCO and thank OCCCO for so many things!
Because liberation and an inclusive community are possible but it requires sacrifice.
