Our Mission

North End Woodward Community Coalition (NEWCC) is a Detroit-based social justice/community development organization, working to build power by focusing on equitable systems change. 

We establish opportunities that improve the quality of life for our community and which create workforce development on a community level, with the goal of community retaining ownership of the projects. Our desire is to regain equity and build community wealth.  We work to create permanent jobs within our community which address root causes of systemic problems and which advance holistic solutions.

NEWCC’s vision is to enhance the social, environmental and economic prosperity of Detroit through leadership, excellence, and inclusion while augmenting and empowering community voice.  Thus building resources, relationships, and skills to equitably shape our future.

Broadly, we organize and advocate for systems changes in media and digital justice, and for just land-use policies which include environmental remediation and a green energy solution.  We strive to imagine and implement “best practice models” within these areas which create lasting systemic change.
