Moses Community

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.

About Us

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.
