BIC Leaders at the MCAN 30th Anniversary Celebration


Brockton Interfaith Community (BIC) was created in 1990 by area clergy and lay leaders driven to action by the troubles facing the city of Brockton, a gateway city. For over 25 years, BIC has been working to change the balance of power in low and moderate income communities of color. We work with local sister organizations across the state as a part of the statewide Massachusetts Communities Action Network (MCAN).
