Building community by investing in children
and families and organizing for justice
Founded in 1969, Ironbound Community Corporation’s (ICC’s) mission is to engage and empower individuals, families, and groups in realizing their aspirations and, together, work to create a just, vibrant and sustainable community.
ICC upholds and builds upon the principles of “Justice and Equality for All.” We strive to practice and build equity, work towards a Just Transition, and organize community on the basis of the Jemez Principles.
We envision a safe, healthy, just, and nurturing Ironbound; a welcoming and fully inclusive community that supports equal and accessible opportunity and the quest for a better life. For us, revitalization means uplifting both people and place. Therefore, we aim to lead the transformation of Ironbound into a neighborhood where anyone might choose to live and current residents can remain in their homes and their community without fear of being displaced.
ICC’s organizing precepts:
Progress with People * Always Uplift, Never Uproot * Development without Displacement.
ICC is animated by a core group of values: Mutual Respect, Empathy, Fairness and Transparency, Commitment to Excellence, and Accountability.
