Brief Description

COPS is a broad-based, multi-ethnic interfaith organization in 1200 neighbourhoods of San Antonio, Texas. It is dedicated to making democracy work and developing non-traditional leadership. COPS succeeds because it does more than mobilize voters, it mobilizes resources. Since its founding in 1974, COPS has helped channel more than $750 million dollars into inner-city neighbourhoods for new housing, streets, sidewalks, sewers, parks and libraries. Most importantly it has overcome a sense of powerlessness and united citizens of all races.
