What is MVOC?

Founded in 2008, the Mahoning Valley Organizing Collaborative (MVOC) is an innovative community organization that brings together neighborhood, faith-based and labor groups in Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties to build the capacity necessary to create sustainable change in our community.

At MVOC, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life throughout the Mahoning Valley by identifying and developing grassroots leaders, cultivating healthy neighborhoods, and building power to address inequality and promote racial, social, and economic justice.
