WELCOME, BIENVENIDOS, & NYOB ZOO!

The Southside Organizing Committee (SOC) is a neighborhood
based organization dedicated to the development and sustain ability
of a safe, livable, and economically vibrant Milwaukee near South Side.

We were established in 1990 and maintain SOC as a
neighborhood self-help organization committed to providing residents
on Milwaukee's Near South Side with

  • greater access to public resources
  • a greater voice in the affairs of their community
  • a mechanism through which they can act together to make positive changes in their neighborhoods

The organization regularly seeks resident input on community
needs and priorities.  We research, compile, and distribute resource
information relative to articulated community interests and needs.  Our
goal is to involve local residents in neighborhood action campaigns
which address community priorities.

SOC serves the 88,000 residents living between the Menomonee Valley
and Oklahoma Avenue from South 1st Street to the West Milwaukee
border.  This area is the most densely populated neighborhood in
the State.  We also have the largest concentration of
non-English speaking residents in the State, and are one of the only areas
experiencing growth in the City of Milwaukee.








Southside Organizing Committee recently held a Fall 2009 Community Meeting for the near Southside.  We invited officials from the Milwaukee Police Department, District
2 and the Department of Public Works to speak on behalf of their departmental efforts within our neighborhood.  At the meeting
we shared a portion of the results of the survey RATE YOUR SERVICES.
