Our goal is to empower communities to take action in our democratic process when we see problems that need to be solved. We are a collective group with many skills to offer. As we build this organization we need help from those we serve to continue the missions and causes that need immediate attention. www.maroonsociety.org
Our current need is to fund a lawyer to protect our Historic Buildings from being demolished. The current at risk building is The Brockway Center which is at risk of being demolished by the current owners. We have been working for months trying to get the organization to work within the requests of City State and Federal agencies. We now have to use legal mesures to hold them accountable to the public good and rights of the people in the community.
We will continue with this fight to protect the rights of the individuals that live in this Red Lined District called the Capital Medical Zoning District. We will be using the funds to build out a framework of professionals that can provide services and recieve a partial compensation for their time. We are also hoping this will create independant business start up in the area.
