About Us

CCO Values

CCO believes. . . .

  • . . . our mission is rooted in the religious experience, social justice, and the conviction that the common good can be found in our common beliefs.

  • . . . our diverse cultures, ethnicities, faith traditions, and experiences enrich and strengthen us in pursuing our mission.

  • . . . people should have a say in the decisions that shape their lives.  They know best what their families and communities need.  Their voices need to be at the center of political life.

  • . . . every citizen, given the proper training, motivation and support can take extraordinary steps to improve the quality of life for their communities.

. . . government can play a vital role in improving society, but that citizens and local organizations need to have the power to influence policy and hold public officials accountable.
