Social Justice Resources

OneOC stands with peaceful protesters who are exercising their constitutionally protected First Amendment rights to speak out against injustice and racism. In times of crisis, be it an earthquake, fire, civil disturbance, and/or a pandemic, OneOC is committed to accelerating nonprofit success, by bringing communities together in service, providing additional resources to our nonprofits that are still on the front-lines of these issues, for the common good of everyone.
