Bobby Gore’s community organizing efforts during the 1960s

Grassroots organizing and issue education

By educating, organizing and mobilizing citizens in our communities, the organization seeks to encourage full participation in a barrier-free democracy. By continuing to lead the fight to eliminate barriers to civic participation, the organization will promote greater social and economic justice to enhance the quality of African American life. Grassroots organizing is powerful because it allows us to bring large numbers of people to the table. These numbers impact decision makers, and the bigger our numbers are the greater is our impact.
