This chapter describes the Mission Coalition Organization (MCO), a grassroots, multi-issue coalition that brought together scores of local organizations representing more than 12,000 residents. At its height, the MCO was an institutional force, recognized as the “voice” of the district in political circles and authorized as the local agent of Model Cities—a 1966 federally funded “community development” program mandating “citizen participation.” Through an assortment of programs and campaigns, the MCO made lasting and meaningful changes to the infrastructure of everyday life for both contemporary and succeeding generations of local residents.
