Dominic Moulden is a Manna, Inc. employee who grew up doing community organizing in Baltimore, now heads up Community Development Corporation. Manna CDC is devoted to true community engagement and ownership. Its organizing goes beyond mobilizing residents for issues selected and defined by Manna CDC staff. Built on traditions of popular education and organizing from the Highlander Center, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and other progressive movements in the U.S. and abroad, Manna CDC invests heavily in identifying and training community leaders. Shaw Education for Action – or SEA – was one of the CDC’s first programs. SEA helps community residents identify the root causes of the issues that affect their families and teaches them to develop strategies for long-term systemic change. SEA members learn, among other things, to build coalitions and grassroots membership, to speak directly to decision makers and hold them accountable and to connect the individual issues they work on to larger themes of justice.
