CCDA based on the philosophy known as Christian Community Development, is not a concept that was developed in a classroom, nor formulated by people foreign to the poor community. These are Biblical, practical principles evolved from years of living and working among the poor. CCDA pioneer, John Perkins, first developed this philosophy while working among the poor in Mississippi. Over the last forty years, practitioners of Christian Community Development have distilled the philosophy into 8 Key Components. The first three are based on John Perkins’ original “three R’s” of community development: relocation, reconciliation and redistribution. Other components were later added by Christians discovering ways to rebuild poor neighborhoods.

The Gowanus Neighborhood Coalition for Justice formed out of an understanding that city rezoning processes generally, and in our community specifically, privileged voices and real estate interests hold disproportionate power. The Coalition represents a concerted effort by local residents and stakeholders to promote social, economic, and environmental justice as the primary framework under which any rezoning, land use changes and/or public investments occur in Gowanus. The Coalition seeks to specifically elevate the priorities of low- and moderate-income residents, industrial firms and the neighborhood-based organizations and small businesses that serve them, in a crowded rezoning conversation where the survival of the existing community has not yet received serious attention.
