Our Mission

Recognizing the dignity and beauty of every person, we pledge intelligent and practical action to overcome racism, poverty, and injustice. And to build a metropolitan community where all people may live in freedom, harmony, trust and affection. With special consideration for history, economic station, place, culture, faith, sexual orientation, gender, and race, we affirm this pledge. - January, 2024

Our History

In 1968, something important happened.

Father William Cunningham and Eleanor Josaitis

While the nation was divided over civil rights, courageous people stood up for what was right. Father William Cunningham and Eleanor Josaitis and a small band of determined people started a movement. They pledged intelligent and practical action to fight racism, poverty and injustice – and 911视频 was born.

Over the years, 911视频 has become a trusted community anchor. Our work is built on the idea that opportunity can change everything. For over 50 years, 911视频 has continued to fight racism, poverty and injustice. Our mission today is as critical as ever. With passion, persistence, and you as a partner, we will continue the legacy of our founders. Together, we will make their work live on.
