Genesis is a community of member organizations working together for access to opportunity, health and quality education for people throughout the Bay Area. Unifying our member congregations and institutions, we have successfully advanced significant public policy initiatives to secure jobs in communities of color and low income families in funding for public transportation. Genesis is the local Bay Area affiliate of the Gamaliel Network. Gamaliel is the organizing network that hired and trained President Barack Obama in community organizing in the southside of Chicago, Illinois.
