BFW is a citizens lobby.  It comprises a collection of organizations, mostly Christian churches, and citizens, that work together to educate then act to enact government policies that minimize hunger locally and around the world.   Holy Family is a member organization.

Omaha Together One Community

OTOC is a local multiethnic, interfaith organization whose members work together to change the lives of ordinary citizens through social justice and local political action.  Members are mostly congregations.  Holy Family is a member church.  OTOC now is in an information gathering part of the year.  One-on-one meetings, house meetings, and church meetings are being held to uncover the issues and problems folks have in their local neighborhoods.  These will then be organized into action groups that study then meet with government officials to try to better the situation.

Action groups at present are  Mental Health Care, Environment and Sustainability, Medicaid Reform and Fair Tax Policy, Housing and Revitalization, Immigration and Refugees, and Predatory Lending.  Visit www.otoc.org for more information.
