Redefining Our Community is an organization of dedicated residents from various streets within the Dorchester community who no longer tolerate the stereotypes and misconceptions associated with our community. Too often, through word of mouth and negative media, Dorchester is misrepresented and stigmatized as an unsafe, dangerous place lacking beauty and goodness. However, our mission is to redefinethat falsehood. ROC will not allow others who live outside our community to speak for and/or define us. We have our own story that we intend to tell. We care about where we live. Dorchester is beautiful and those of us who live here want a safe clean environment for our families to live, work and attend school. ROC is committed to change.
