Information about COR: Congregations Organizing for Renewal is a multi-faith and multicultural non-profit organization that represents over 25,000 families and constituents in Southern Alameda County and is part of the nation-wide PICO network. Known as COR, they help communities to make systemic changes through policy changes in order to improve the communities. They do this by teaching skills, known as organizing, to members in the community who want to be empowered to make the changes themselves. Some victories that COR has been part of recently includes passing Measure U-U in Union City, which helped to reduce youth violence and fatalities in the city once it was passed. COR has also been instrumental in getting 200 units of affordable housing and generating local jobs that will available next to the San Leandro BART station, which is part of the TOD work (Transit Oriented Development) that is happening, which will break ground next year in August. COR is also working on issues such as education, affordable housing, and youth violence prevention in Hayward, Union City, San Leandro, and Fremont
