Reinvent South Stockton Coalition (RSSC) is a public-private-non-profit collective impact initiative working to empower residents to transform their community by affecting the root causes of intergenerational poverty through improvements in safety, education, housing, job creation, economic development, and health.
We are reinventing South Stockton by...
calibrating institutions to empower residents, breaking down silos to focus on intersectional solutions, and fostering trust between residents, institutions, and non-profits.
Authentically understanding the complex issues of our community through a clear window and in a common language.

Knowing where Stockton has been guides where Stockton is going

Progress requires a clear understanding of the past. A significant part of the work done at RSSC is to tell the story of South Stockton and promote reconciliation between the community we serve and the systems and institutions that have historically discriminated against or neglected this community. Knowing the history is a key step in reconciliation and healing.

Initiatives to empower the community and build trust

Amplifying the voice of the people through civic engagement, improving the way that institutions serve our community, and developing trust between institutions and the community are central strategies for our collective impact model. Read about our current initiatives to make that happen.
