The Change Agent Consortium was founded in 2012 by David Alexander Bullock. Bullock, who most recently served as the state coordinator of the Michigan affiliate of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, started CAC to effect real change and real solutions by using economic empowerment, community organizing, and community development. CAC works to influence public policy and create local projects that empower communities. Currently, the Change Agent Consortium has two major long term campaigns that its members are working on: Healthy Food Financing Initiative and Crusade for America.
"The Advance Summit will introduce CAC to Southeastern Michigan, but will focus on Detroit as ground zero for dealing with emergency management and the structural problems in America's economy. Detroit, Mich., is ground zero for the fight to revive populist political engagement and broaden the pathway to economic opportunity in America. CAC provides a comprehensive approach to urban economic redevelopment. Our approach puts wealth in the hands of locally anchored forms of business, which in turn reinvests in their local neighborhoods and builds wealth in poor communities. This summit is the beginning of our mission to educate the community on our initiatives and get them engaged in efforts to regain lasting control of their communities," said David Alexander Bullock, Change Agent Consortium national spokesperson.
