Founded in early 2008 at a soup kitchen on Detroit’s east side, Detroit Action Commonwealth (DAC)
is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization. DAC develops individual and collective power to promote opportunity, advance justice, and challenge and change root causes of poverty and homelessness.
More than 7,000 individuals have taken part in DAC activities to date, and more than 3,800 of them have signed up as members. Our three chapters each meet weekly: at the two Capuchin Soup Kitchens and at the Saint Leo Soup Kitchen. Each chapter elects its own board and raises its own funds.
DETROIT ACTION COMMONWEALTH
Detroit Action Commonwealth addresses immediate needs as it challenges institutions that create and perpetuate those needs. Our mission is to advance human development in all of its dimensions: social, economic, political, personal, and spiritual.
