SCC is able to accomplish all we do each year thanks to the ongoing hard work of members, supporters and partners. Each step of the way, you are there, making a difference in the lives of Somerville residents and the future direction of the City.

The things that sustain us . . .

  • Walking into the Somerville Aldermanic Chambers and seeing a roomful of people there to support the important policies around affordable housing, jobs and community benefits
  • Listening to members – many who don’t have a lot of experience with public speaking – giving heart-felt testimonies at public meetings
  • Receiving a check in the mail from a new donor, or from someone who makes it a priority to contribute to SCC every year
  • All the spontaneous treats our members leave for us in our kitchen: chocolate chip cookies, roasted curry chicken, Bengali pakoras, pupusas, Union Square Donuts, pastries from Paul Bakery . . .

You, our members, give us so much every day. SCC would not be who we are today without the spirited generosity of all of our people. 

Thank you.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
