About GCC

Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) is a non-partisan organization of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice.

As a catalyst for systemic change, GCC challenges Greater 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 and build a greater Cleveland for all of its residents.

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.

GCC is 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, GCC builds the power necessary to create a Greater Cleveland.
