Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries
Mission:Our mission is "to mobilize congregations and communities across economic, religious, racial, and ethnic boundaries so that, in partnership, we can work more effectively for a just society."
History: CMM is the greater Boston area's oldest interfaith social justice network. Founded in 1966 by faith communities to address poverty, housing, and racial justice in Boston and to link urban and suburban congregations in just, transformative partnerships, CMM has tackled the most pressing issues facing our communities for 42 years, working to build Dr. King's vision of Beloved Community for all citizens.
Membership: CMM’s members and partners include nearly 100 congregations, nonprofit agencies, and educational institutions in Boston and 16 surrounding cities and towns. Traditions represented in CMM’s membership include Jewish, Muslim, United Church of Christ, Catholic, American Baptist, United Methodist, Quaker, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Pentecostal, nondenominational, Unitarian Universalist, Bahai, and secular allies inspired by conscience. CMM’s approach to social action and cross cultural/interfaith partnerships affirms the necessity of partnerships and dignity and value of all persons in our common quest for justice and peace.
