2020 Annual Report Overview

At a glance . . .

The South of Downtown CDO had a unique year, to say the least. Amid economic insecurity,
housing instability and public health crises caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic, calls for
racial justice with the Black Lives Matter movement nationwide and locally through the Black
Leaders Movement, the social isolation and community disconnectedness as a result of social
distancing precautions to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we, along with our friends and
neighbors persevered to continue building community in new and creative ways. The 2020 annual report
details what we view as our achievements throughout 2020 and how we kept our work going
