Built out of the organizing structure of churches, unions and block associations, CDCs were envisioned as a way for citizens to have direct control over their neighborhoods while leveraging the tools of government and business. Since 1967, the first CDC, now called the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, has constructed or renovated 2,200 housing units and helped bring more than $475 million in investments to central Brooklyn. Meanwhile, the East Los Angeles Community Union formed in 1968 and was also funded through the Kennedy-Javits legislation.

Conversation + Design = Social Change.’
The Iceberg is a place where anyone with any background can work alongside each other. A place where an accountant can work next to a skateboard manufacturer founder. A place where this dynamic helps create the diverse set of resources The Iceberg is able to provide. By celebrating the fact that anyone and everyone can work alongside each other, we are able to increase the possibilities so serendipitous moments, increase the access to perspective, resources, and expertise, as well as offer a higher level of support from the community.
