Our Mission

WeROC brings together faith, labor, community organizations, and individuals to build healthy collective power needed to break down the systems that sustain injustice, racism, and economic inequality.

Our Vision

WeROC‘s vision is to use our organizing process for the purpose of creating opportunities for more people of color, lower income residents, and youth to participate at the tables where decisions affecting them and the broader community are made, so that together we are developing effective strategies for dismantling the structures that stubbornly maintain injustice, racism, and economic inequality in our area.

WeROC leaders are committed to launching a new phase of WeROC’s local history right here in Washtenaw, building on the deep relationships built, meaningful victories won, and collective experience WeROC members have gained in these first years.  WeROC leaders welcome broad participation  in planning the critical next steps underway right now. We know that when the organized voices of those who’ve been pushed to the margins are powerfully heard, all of us in Washtenaw are the better for it.

WeROC continues to find ways to support the organized voices of our neighbors who are hardest hit by the health and economic crises. As we build capacity for our next exciting phase, we will be grateful for any ongoing financial support from the community – use the “Donate Now” button at the top of this page.
