How We Help
The Citizens Coalition for Justice Reform - UWOC's advocacy arm - is a diverse group comprised of local residents in North Alabama affected by social justice issues diverse marginalized populations face. Militarized policing and police brutality, healthcare, food insecurity, gender equality and voter suppression are a few of the issues we address.
When Vote Gone Viral, democracy wins. We promote active civic participation with Candidate Forums, voter education, participatory research, community conversations, and civics training. We engage all folks to help bridge understanding and move forward.
Through mentorship, career advancement opportunities, workshops, and leadership development, we help provide tools and experience for WOC to succeed.
