Why the CPP?

The story of Columbus is a modern tale of two cities. We have the strongest economy in Ohio, but 4 out of 5 students in Columbus City Schools live in poverty. We have a socially progressive community but 1 out of 3 black men will be taken to jail or prison in their lifetime. Columbus could live up to its promise of being "America's Opportunity City" though, if we join together to make it a reality. We believe the ingredients exist in Columbus to be the kind of city where healthy, safe, and economically secure families can grow. Columbus needs broad based organizing that puts everyday people at the table where solutions are crafted and decisions are made.
