Promotoras Active for Community (PAC) is a citywide team of residents that are working together to discover the assets and interests of their neighbors, stimulate volunteerism and strengthen community ties, respond to the concerns and unmet needs of the community, create more caring relationships among community members, and generally improve community well being.

The members of PAC are known as Promotoras, and also serve as the connection between resources/services available, and our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family.

This group was previously the Neighborhood Council Initiative (NCI).
