Founded in early 2008 at a soup kitchen on Detroit’s East Side, the Detroit Action Commonwealth (DAC) is a membership organization that develops individual and collective capacity to challenge and change root causes of poverty, homelessness, and injustice.
DAC addresses immediate needs as it challenges the underlying conditions and institutions that create and perpetuate those needs. Our commitment to results
than 3,500 individuals have participated in DAC activities to date, and more
than 1,400 have signed up as DAC members.
The organization has three chapters that meet regularly (at the two Capuchin Soup Kitchens and at St. Leo Parish Soup Kitchen), and DAC has been invited to start chapters at two additional locations.
