Without You, We Couldn’t Have Done It!
With your financial support, it was another momentous year for Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC )and our work to seek systemic change and justice for all people in our community.
- We succeeded in our advocacy work to address excessive incarceration with the opening in May of the Cuyahoga County Mental Health and Addiction Crisis Diversion Center at Oriana House.
- Through our Color of Health Initiative, we provided hundreds of Covid-19 vaccines and tests at member churches in the City of Cleveland in low vaccination communities.
- We knocked on over 1,000 doors and talked with almost 400 Cleveland residents about their opinions on the biggest issues Cleveland faces and their connection (or lack thereof) to the democratic process.
- We conducted a mayoral forum with the two final candidates, Justin Bibb and Kevin Kelley, and contacted over 3,000 voters prior to the Cleveland Mayoral election to provide information about voting and encourage voter’s participation in this historic election.
