National CAPACD applauds President Obama's nominations of Nani Coloretti to Deputy Secretary and Erika Moritsugu to Assistant Secretary for Congressional and Intergovernmental Relations at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
National CAPACD seeks a highly motivated, flexible Program Assistant to join a dynamic and rapidly growing organization. The Program Assistant will provide critical support to National CAPACD’s Housing Counseling Program and support our evolving work in Asset Building and Community Development in the Oakland office.
Scholarships through our Next Generation Leadership Program are now available for National CAPACD members to join us at our 2014 Annual Convention, The Movement for Economic Justice: Changing Our Narratives Together at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington DC, June 8-11, 2014.
Part of the reason why CDCs have not been able to sustain a consistent, long term set of community organizing programs—why most CDCs have not been able to do community organizing at the depth and scale and for the duration that Chinatown CDC has been able to—is that many CDCs’ relationship to community organizing has become corrupted. As CDCs became more focused on real estate development, organizing became more about gaining approval and funding for real estate development projects. The relationship with community residents became more of a means to an end rather than an end in and of itself.
