Southside Organizing Committee (SOC) is a neighborhood-based organization dedicated to the development and sustainability of Milwaukee’s near south side neighborhoods. We work with and for residents to create a safe, livable, and economically vibrant community and are committed to providing residents with:

  • Greater VOICE in the affairs of their community
  • Greater access to public RESOURCES
  • Greater ability to act together to make a POSITIVE CHANGE in their neighborhoods

Established in 1990, SOC recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. To commemorate this occasion, we launched our GO BLUE campaign. This campaign is about taking our work of grassroots organizing to the next level by building leadership, unity, and engagement among our residents.

G0 BLUE: Grassroots Organizing Building Leadership, Unity, and Engagement

SOC regularly seeks input from residents and engages them in addressing community needs and priorities. We research, compile, and distribute resource information based on articulated community interests and needs.

SOC serves over 88,000 residents within the following boundaries: The Menomonee Valley and Oklahoma Avenue from north to south, and Lake Michigan and Miller Park Way from east to west.


SOC Coverage Area

Our coverage area contains the most densely populated and diverse neighborhoods in the State, has the largest concentration of non-English speaking residents, and is one of the few areas of Milwaukee to experience population growth in recent years.
