The Marin Organizing Committee (MOC) was founded to apply the grass-roots community organizing methods of the Industrial Areas Foundation to social justice issues in Marin. FCCSR was a founding member of MOC in 2005, but dropped out for a few years while they went through some growing pains.
In 2014, however, it was clear that MOC had established themselves as a powerful force for progress in Marin, especially on homelessness issues. We re-connected with MOC and pledged to renew our full membership in 2015.
We aren’t alone. MOC has emerged as the leader in a re-energized effort to establish a permanent, year-round homeless shelter in Marin. This program has attracted support from a wide range of faith-based organizations and local governments.
