MOSES is a community organizing nonprofit serving residents of Detroit, Michigan and its surrounding metropolitan region. We support the development of strong grassroots leaders, and facilitate campaigns to address social justice issues.
Guided by faith-based principles of social justice and fellowship, MOSES helps ordinary people find and exercise their civic power. When a community faces a problem, the members of that community are best equipped to solve it. MOSES provides residents with the skills they need to effectively address issues of community concern. We support historically marginalized communities, empowering residents to participate in the decision-making processes that affect their daily lives.
Political, social and economic circumstances in metro Detroit are ever changing, yet the essence of MOSES remains constant. We strive to facilitate a vibrant regional democracy, and to support the collective needs of our region’s people.
New and Events
Support historic education bills!
Recently, the Michigan Senate took a huge step forward for Detroit students and families by passing SB 711 and 710. The bills include an elected DPS school board; the creation of a new public entity, the Detroit Education Commission, to coordinate charters and DPS; the return of EAA schools to DPS; and the payment of DPS’ debt by the State.
Now, these bills must be passed by the House of Representatives. Call your Representative and tell them to stand with Detroit students by voting YES on the Detroit schools package, HB 710 and 711, exactly as it passed through the Senate!
