About ONE DC:
ONE DC (formerly Manna CDC) is a progressive popular education and 
community organizing
group that has been operating in the District of Columbia since 1997. 
Based on our
analysis of and experience with the tremendous economic and social 
changes in DC,
we have developed a mission "to continually create and preserve racial 
and economic
equity in the District."
In our short history, ONE DC has distinguished itself as one of a few 
in Washington, DC that moves beyond service provision to build 
sustainable community
capacity and leadership so that low-income people of color can speak for 
ONE DC promotes leadership that does not tell others what to do, but 
helps them
take charge to build their abilities and skills; it is not about being 
the leader,
but about building more leadership in the community to increase capacity 
for the
  long term. Finally, ONE DC recognizes that leadership cannot exist 
without the
support and power of the whole community. Central to ONE DC's leadership 
style is
the identification and dismantling of systemic influences such as 
racism, classism
and sexism that manifest both individually and institutionally.
ONE DC's progressive organizing values are heavily influenced by the 
and achievements of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee 
(SNCC), as well
as other groups and people-led movements for justice and human rights 
that have
occurred throughout the world.
Organizationally, ONE DC has formally implemented a non-hierarchical, 
shared leadership
structure that recognizes, supports and encourages the abilities and 
of its board, members and staff.
