Theory of Change

Place your cursor over a slide to pause the animation.

Since 1973, MEDA has worked to build generational
Family Wealth for Latinos.

But gentrification has led to 8,000 Latinos displaced
from San Francisco’s Mission District in the last decade.

So now MEDA is working toward Community Ownership --
to maintain the Mission District as place.

Community Ownership includes Community Real Estate …

… plus Non-Displacement Capital ...

… plus the Mission Promise Neighborhood
community anti-poverty education initiative.

Family Wealth + Community Ownership = Political Power ...

… leading to a Latino Wealth and Power-Building Movement
across the nation.
