OTOC exists to recreate community in our fragmented society. People are often disconnected and conversations about important issues are difficult. OTOC seeks to reweave the frayed social fabric and connect people across the lines that tend to divide them: race and ethnicity, economics, religion, geography and language.
OTOC teaches people to become effective leaders, explore their legitimate interests, do solid research, engage in sometimes tough, but always respectful public discourse, hold elected officials accountable, and create positive change through collective action. OTOC holds a number of events throughout the year such as house meetings, research actions, accountability sessions, and leadership training.
We feel inter-faith community organizing is one of the most effective ways our church can make a positive difference in the Omaha community.
