Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) is a non-partisan coalition of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice. GCC unites people across lines of race, class, religion, and geography to promote public, private and civic sector actions which strengthen and improve the quality of life of our neighborhoods.
We will challenge Clevelanders to imagine the change we can accomplish, connect individuals and organizations to multiply our power, and mobilize our members by the thousands to make our voices heard.
We will set audacious goals, create savvy strategies—and, if necessary, take on the powerful interests that stand in the way.
We are part of the Industrial Areas Foundation, the nation’s first and largest network of multi-faith coalitions, and we draw on their seven decades of experience winning tough battles across the nation.
Drawing on the proven power of person-to-person organizing, we will build the power necessary to create a Greater Cleveland.
An estimated two thousand people packed an interfaith service Monday night in Cleveland with the goal of making the city a "more just and prosperous place."
