"We believe that injustice is happening in the halls of Congress and in the halls of state capitols around this country."
Rev. William Barber
United clevelanders Against Poverty (UCAP)
United Clevelanders Against Poverty (UCAP) is a Cleveland area organization of low-income persons and families organizing around issues that impact them. A wholly grassroots movement, UCAP brings together impoverished and disenfranchised peoples from across the area and puts the power back into their hands.
The movement focuses on organizing as a new tool to reinvigorate activism in poor communities and to encourage the poor and low-income families to see that change is possible, and that it can come from them and their common efforts. UCAP was one of the catalyzing forces for the creation of the End Poverty Now! Coalition.
