We have HOPE for justice!
HOPE is a multi-issue, grassroots, community organization consisting of 23 multicultural and interfaith member congregations throughout Hillsborough County. HOPE is a non-partisan, private, non-profit, 501(c) 3, tax-exempt, community organization founded and incorporated in the State of Florida in 1988.
HOPE’s mission is to promote justice, fairness, and the dignity of people, by engaging and training people to responsibly and successfully act together to hold officials accountable to improve the systems affecting the quality of life in our communities. We do that by:
Training residents to identify common community problems experienced by families and neighbors
Meeting with local experts and decision-makers to better understand the problems and identify long-term solutions
Take action to hold decision-makers accountable to implement the long-term systemic solutions
