Welcome to Stonecrest Citizens Coalition
The Stonecrest Citizens Coalition, with its history of grassroots organizing and advocacy, is guided by Stonecrest residents committed to community engagement, dialogue and deliberation, transparency, and efficacy.
Our goal is to do transformative, impactful work informed by the community and by sound data-gathering and analysis that supports what the community wants and needs. Not just for the city’s sake, but for the benefit of everyone who lives, works and visits here.
One Stonecrest united under the concept of Ujima (collective work and responsibility), where the city government cooperates with its citizens to establish and maintain a government that is ethical, transparent and accountable. And where the citizens of Stonecrest are engaged collectively, to improve our quality of life as expressed in the city’s pillars of Live, Work, Play, Shop, Educate and Worship.
To improve the quality of life and prosperity for Stonecrest residents, business owners and other stakeholders through education, advocacy and action.
Follow the Voter Outreach Turnout & Engagement (V.O.T.E.) Committee as they engage and inform citizens about the importance of voting in local elections and getting involved in local politics.
These conversations bring together candidates, city workers, teachers, and community members from across the city and the larger community to discuss significant problems in the public square. Participants and facilitators alike, we hope, will have a better knowledge of the obstacles and opportunities of community conversations.
