The Emancipation Economic Development Council
We, the EEDC, are a collaborative of organized, informed and engaged faith-based organizations, nonprofits, community development corporations, businesses, local government entities and other stakeholders from the community.
Our vision is a resilient, dynamic, and economically prosperous community where people live, work, and thrive in a historically and culturally rich African-American neighborhood.
Our mission is to inspire hope and contribute to the revitalization and preservation of the Third Ward.
