San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP)

Developing faith-based civic leadership through local organizing work in order to improve communities and achieve social justice.


Since 1979, we have built community power by training local leaders to organize and advocate for improvements in the quality of life for all families in our neighborhoods. We increase access to health care, improve public schools, make neighborhoods safer, build affordable housing, redevelop communities, and revitalize democracy by holding elected officials accountable.

As one of the most diverse grassroots networks in the region, we uniquely bridge racial, cultural and economic divides. We celebrate our differences and remain united by our shared values of equality, compassion and faith turned into action.

A network of 31 diverse faith congregations building community power to drive justice and equality in San Diego County. We are a nonpartisan, multi-issue, interfaith federation representing more than 70,000 families across San Diego.
